In a far away future, when/where technology has erased scarcity, competition and poverty, what purpose does civilisation still have?
Suppose a civilisation reaches a level at which it can harvest solar energy to fuel energy matter constructors and use these devices to create any object in any quantity forever, have automated robot workforce to fill in any remaining menial tasks available (run by limited virtual intelligence so as to avoid a matrix or terminator apocalypse), and have the ability to heal any wound or illness through nanotechnology or cloning.
A true, honest-to-God utopia.
Does civilisation hold any meaning any more? Do people have any purpose left? Is society as a whole left with any meaning?
(Assuming for the purpose of this query that we don't turn into some form of religious zealots.)
Also, besides it being a better alternative to a dystopian future, do we actually want to evolve into a utopia?
