People don’t actually read newspapers. They step into them every morning like a hot bath.
The price of eternal vigilance is indifference.
All advertising advertises advertising.

When a thing is current, it creates currency.

Air-Conditioning as a McLuhanist ’Warm Bath’
“When you are on the phone or on the air, you have no body”.
“People don’t actually read newspapers. They step into them every morning like a hot bath.”
When you are in air conditioning, the difference between ‘are’ and ‘body’ disappears. Your not just bathing in media, you are the media; the cold turns on your furnace. Pretty soon you’d rather not go out, you’ve warmed to the bath water. When you’re bathing in any media the universe becomes a subjective place.
When you read a book bathed in light, the reflection of light waves from the page activates neurons; the brain translates the icons into meaning…where you are.

Great! Or REM put it:
Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
And I feel fine.
