No, it's not mental stimulation that keeps them on the go - it's
pathological insecurity. To validate their own self-worth it's important
that their existence be recognized by as many as possible.
They see rock stars and celebrities idolized and conclude that the more
people who love you, the more your 'worth' is validated. Only one in a
hundred thousand doesn't feel this way. In fact, a whole story was written
to illustrate the concept: "The Emperor Has No Clothes."
Here's an example from real life:
"Is this Dr Feynman?"
"Dr Richard P. Feynman?"
"Dr Feynman, my name is Joe Blow. I'm the United States charge d'affairs to
the Court of King Gustav V of Sweden. It is my distinct pleasure to inform
you that you have been awarded the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics!"
"Do you know what-the-hell time it is in California?"
"(?) Er, no...."
"It is three o'clock in the goddamn morning. Call back after nine!"
I believe that if a country had a hundred people who didn't give a shit
about whether they were worshipped, that country would rule the planet.
I don't agree with that last statement and I'd never work for a company as
strict as you mention.
Where I work, we have real humans for employees, we treat them with respect,
and we know that no one can work all day without a break, mentally and
physically. Employees are rewarded for their good deeds and hard work too.
What you describe sounds like a concentration camp.
