Referring to a theoretical point in time past resource scarcity, society, or economical system in which there is no shortage of most goods, and labour, for the most part, is not placed on humans. The idea stems from futurological concepts of a society that has advanced to such a point that most resources are not limited, and can be produced, oftentimes by robots or narrow AI, or other artificial mechanisms. In this society, there would be no conflicts over resources, and society would have reached its maximum efficiency.
A post-scarcity society, one where do not worry about limited resources.
