Example text

Boredom cripples the will. Meaning stimulates it. The peak experience is a sudden surge of meaning. The question that arises now is: how can I choose meaning? If Maslow is correct, I can’t. I must be ‘surprised’ by it. It is a by-product of effort. At this point, I was able to point out to Maslow a possibility that he had overlooked, a concept I called ‘the indifference threshold’ or ‘St Neot margin’. It is fundamentally a recognition that crises or difficulties can often produce a sense of meaning when more pleasant stimuli have failed.

Admittedly, he can’t learn languages or how to type, but if I take him for a walk on the cliffs, he obviously experiences every time just as if it is the first. I can tell this by the ecstatic way he bounds about. Descartes was all wrong about animals. ’ Heaven lies about us in our infancy, as Wordsworth pointed out, because the robot hasn’t yet taken over. So a child experiences delightful things as more delightful, and horrid things as more horrid. Time goes slower, and mechanical tasks drag, because there is no robot to take over.

When something occupies my full attention, it is very real to me. When I have put the book back on the shelf, I have un-realised it, to some extent. I have pushed it back to a more abstract level of reality. But I have the power to realise it again. Consider the mental act I make when I feel glad to see the book again. I ‘reach out’ my invisible mental tentacles to it, as I might reach out my hand to a friend I am delighted to see, and I focus my beam of interest on it with a kind of intensity—the kind of intentness with which a sapper de-fuses an unexploded bomb.
