I was in Harvard Square about two weeks ago and everyone there seemed miserable. Why didn't you get a place near Fanuel Hall? It was full of cheerful materialists. My own perspective is that freedom is inversely proportional to number, size, and cost of possesions. Having got rid of my house, my wife, my cat, my furniture and my car I feel now free to contemplate the infinite. Of course, I am now unfortunately filling up my apartment with camera equipment, so will probably never achieve Zen. I seek instead the exact correct amount of underexposure for my slide film as the key that will unlock the secret of the universe.
