Are you saying that he got depressed about the lack of value in the meanigless workings of this world (including his own wisdom as compared to say a life of stupid pleasures) ...if so are you saying this knowledge is focused on the 'activities and occurrences of this world', as compared to such things as knowledge of God, or even of non-depressing subjects such as mathematics ?

seems you put a lot of thought into it +1, i think you're right about not directly refering to man's nature but by calling man's activities and meaningless behaviour as crooked ...it's indirectly implied.

I guess even a microprocessor is nothing new as it is just a further development of controlling electricity which has always been there since creation. I suppose the focus is also not on technology but human behavior as you point out. ;)

@Davïd - The question has no relation to the meaning of 'Under The Sun' in my mind, and I fail to see the connection.
