@Kooker,
Reconstructo,

I think that one of literatures biggest assets is that it takes us out of ourselves and allows us to wander freely through alternate points of view.

In this way, we are allowed to live many more lives than what is sanctioned by remaining in our own skin, day after day.

Mind, when confined to the physical, is an unhappy creature. : ^ (

I agree with all of this. Have you seen Barton Fink? "I'll show you the life of the mind... "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuOSKzYfAgE
