Calm: Twenty Four.
The Master does not own an iPod.
Thus his mind is his own.
He doesn't own much else, either.
No mobile phone, no mp3 player, no laptop...
Observe people, everywhere:
see how they bop and jerk to the beat of various stimuli.
Hear the drone of radios in every workplace,
every restaurant, surgery, dental clinic, hospital.
Even parking lots have piped music.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to escape this rhythmic intrusion.
People even carry it around with them, wherever they go.
Search out silence, and the muted sounds of nature.
Your mind will become your own again.
And you will sleep better.
