That's the difference between conceptualizing breathing of fresh air and
actually doing it. Without analyses and self-awareness, you can't really
understand the quality of all your experiences. Without direct contact,
you won't get fresh experience. On days when I'm cooped up in front of the
computer or canvas or reading esoteric books, I occasionally need to flip
on the TV and watch Rosie O'Donnell, Oprah, etc., just to stay connected to
the "real" world. It's not a "high" experience, but it connects me with
all the millions of other folks who are watching them.

No damnation! Although all the carnivores might have to eat you since you
have put yourself low in the food chain.
