Let me set the scene: you’re captive in an aluminium tube, thirty thousand feet above the ocean, cruising at a speed of over eight hundred kilometres per hour. Hours have passed, and hours are yet to pass. With your senses dulled from your fourth complementary beverage, you crave a simpler time. You don’t find it – it finds you. Wistful memories of childhood innocence surface. You feel a primal instinct to frolic in nature. What once was lost but now is found, virtually represented on the seat in front of you.
