    Perhaps only because our own lives, so much easier in many ways,

    1. Perhaps only because our own lives, so much easier in many ways, are also so constrained by the imperative to work, we have to wonder why.

    are upper bolded texts grammatically correct?
    why didn't Inversion happen at main clause?




    2. Men and women were crossing the floor, talking, watching, dancing, standing, spread out across the vast room.

    Even though in front of "spread", "being" is omitted, why don't we need "and"?




    3. Mike took his place with the other contestants and was as joyful as a child on Christmas morning at.

    What does "at" mean?
