The of reflection and introspection that Zajonc elucidates here is a welcome balm for the narcissistic, entitled, self-centered, and ultimately unsatisfying tendencies in all of us that are fueled by the consumption of modern culture.
Well worth entering into a world of knowing at a deeper level.
Good explanation of and assistance for contemplation as growing in mindfulness, awareness--that other knowing.
