What booted the topic... What do you think about RITUALS? Pipes have different meanings to different cultures. Surf culture never embraced pipes? I respect your culture. I say unto thee SURFS UP! I know you are a Dawkins disciple., @ataxian. Don't feel excluded from my next question. I ask my fellow vaporists. Do you think humans should engage in RITUALS? Is it an essential part of being human? Is it unhealthy, and perhaps unnatural to be entirely engaged in 'FACT' based reality. Where does creativity come from? Now the big question. Can you have a vape transcend FUNCTIONAL mode and have it become a RITUAL DEVICE? I think it qualified and CIVILIZED and certain ones should be elevated and revered like other religious and historic artifacts of our age. Have fun with my premise. Many Blessings on your M @ataxian, and may it bring you closer to vapor bliss.
