“For the vast majority of American families, what seems to be the real point of life—what you rush home to get to—is to watch an electronic reproduction of life. You can’t touch it, it doesn’t smell, and it has no taste. You might think that people getting home to the real point of life in a robust material culture would go home to a colossal banquet, an orgy of love making, or a riot of music and dancing. But nothing of the kind—it turns out to be this purely passive contemplation of a twittering screen.” – Alan Watts
