The prevailing sentiment in mainstream western thought (or lack thereof) is that the world must be experienced to be known and enjoyed. As subscribers to this sentiment, most people in America take every opportunity they can to get out of their homes—eating, drinking, traveling. Such is the logos of the masses.

However, ask the masses when the last time was they had their views pleasantly challenged, their perspective altered, their life changed, and what you will find is that, by and large, people learn little from the world they experience.
