H-World, everybody was named Harold and all worshiped the king of H-World who was Harold himself. In H-World people ate certain foods?mostly marshmallows and M& Ms?and they had certain occupations?mostly of the professional-athlete variety. H-World even had its own history, events from fantasies gone by, which were recorded in the memory banks just like the history in the real world.

He begins to walk the way they walk, and laugh as they laugh. He sees the patterns of their daily existence, which they are no longer even aware of. His mind naturally oscillates between the outer texture of their lives?their jewelry, clothes and mementoes?and what he intuits of their inner hopes and goals.

When you are out there on the scene, you are plunged into particulars. A thousand sensations wash over you. In ancient times a human wanderer would see a stream in a new landscape, and the sight would be coated with pleasure. He would see a dense forest or a craggy ravine, and a little marker of fear would lodge with the image in his brain.

This receptiveness can happen only when you are physically there. Not when you are reading about a place, but only when you are on the scene, immersed in it. If you don?t actually visit a place, you don?t really know it. If you just study the numbers, you don?t know it. If you don?t get used to the people, you don?t know it. As the Japanese proverb puts it: Don?t study something. Get used to it.
