11/15/2005 Archived Entry: "Unterrupted time is a necessity"
UNINTERRUPTED TIME TO THINK, REFLECT, AND CREATE is not a luxury -- though we have allowed it to become one. In setting up contitions of ceaseless, artificial hustle-bustle, do-it-now, interrupt this to do that, we've removed something crucial from being human. We've eliminated the pure, clear time needed to synthesize information and experience. To put together the pieces and make sense of life.
Without that, it's all just random motion.
Why have we allowed one of life's greatest necessities to become a privilege that almost none of us can afford? It's absurd. It's destructive. And it saps life not only of meaning but of pleasure.
