When can we go to bed?

‘The end of the day, what do we human beings do? We gather around the campfire, right. That’s what human beings always do at the end of the day. Today the campfire is called a computer or a television, whatever. Drama goes back to the beginning of civilization around the campfire, where the tribe comes together and they say, my God, did you see what blah-blah did with that mountain lion today? We’re going to put aside the burden of our consciousness for a while and sit around the campfire and tell stories. And then we can go to bed.’ David Mamet
