Most television channels alternate between made-up drama and adverts for products. The mind is like that. It spends most of its time making up dramas, and the remainder of its time it spends displaying pictures of what it thinks you should acquire to make you happy.
Drama. Desire. Drama. Desire. Drama. Desire.
