 Meditaiton has no effect on angression, connectedness, prejudice, or compassion. It may have an effect on empathy. In general the evidence for the prosocial benefits of meditation is weak The limited prosocial effects of meditation: A systematic review and metaanalysis.

The average wage has increased 3.4x since WWII.
$$ U = \left( w \cdot L \right)^\epsilon  a \cdot L^b $$
$$ \frac{dU}{dL} = \epsilon \cdot w \cdot \left( w \cdot L \right)^{\epsilon  1}  a \cdot b \cdot L^{b1} $$
$$ \epsilon \cdot w^\epsilon \cdot L^\epsilon = a \cdot b \cdot L^b $$
$$ L = \left( \frac{\epsilon \cdot w^\epsilon}{a \cdot b} \right)^{1/(b  \epsilon)} $$
$$ \epsilon / (b  \epsilon) $$

Consider any computable set of positive integers X (e.g. "prime numbers", "multiples of 7", "factorial numbers", etc.). There exists a (multivariate) polynomial f(x1, x2, ...) with integer coefficients such that X = image(f). In fact, the sets constructable in either the Turingsense or the polynomialsense are exactly the same.
