The Experiment

This summer I want to compare the experience of watching HBO's The Wire with merely sitting and contemplating the world itself. I apologize in advance for the ridiculousness of this experiment. This project is merely an effort to think about the value of enjoying great culture, be it a television show, a string quartet, or novel, as opposed to sitting in a mindful state. In this experiment I will alternate watching an hour-long episode of The Wire with an hour of just sitting at my dining room table listening to nothing but the ambient noise of the environment.
