But I don't see how focusing on being, or focusing on an uninteresting activity, is worthwhile.
If I'm doing something for which the sensory inputs are highly pleasurable, or the thoughts in my head are currently very interesting, then I can see how such an activity is useful.
Why do you do any one thing that is uninteresting, after you label it as unteresting?
