"externalities" being ?? half the world are epistemological solipsists, and are therefore more capable of reason than scientists/adherents of dogma.
if you'll forgive me for saying so, you have demonstrated intellect and interest for dsp,
reviewing and confronting the material in my previous post would do much to satisfy the questions in yours.
excuse me running my mouth as if i had some pertinence to the thread, when i joined kvr there were under a score of free vst available. with the advent of SE, i enjoyed a short period of being one of many working to facilitate the public with audio routines, temporarily reducing the pertinence of economics to the field. of course, this was a finite period. what i wish to impart is that it was, in so many ways, different. much of what was gained then has been gradually lost, to the point where the public is incapable of discerning the truth of the matter about eg. comb filters and delays.
i've never desired to live in a culture with stupider, more destructive people, and i can't imagine how anyone thinks that would be profitable or even comfortable.

on the matter of movement,
william burroughs put it, once the die have been cast, the industrialist is no longer interested in revision, only production. any process that one engages in ough(excuse typing, being keytracked) to include some practice of cessation. anything you learn how to do, it is helpful to learn how to not do it as soon as you learn how to do it. keeping consideration of emptiness with consideration of fullness is balance. if you learn to drive, learn to brake. learn to get out of the car, and not drive, or do anything with the car whatsoever. i'm certain you can see this principle and the deficit of it at work all around you in life.
