1. Why do you get tired of a song? Is it because you hear more and more of your thinking about it and less and less of the music?
2. Why do you think a book goes faster the next time that you read it? Is it because you think you know it so do not have to experience it?
3. Why do you think a movie goes faster the next time you see it? Is it because you jump to your thoughts about it rather than seeing and watching it?
4. What makes things boring if not the boring mind that is made boring and dead by knowing.
5. What kills sensing and experiencing but knowing? Curiosity and not-knowing keep experiencing, intelligence, and sensing alive.
