53:  You can’t change the sea, but the sea will readily change you.

54:  Wants are like temporary dipoles that arise in the presence of agents that polarize your attention cloud, focusing it in one particular area. Stronger the polarizing agent, stronger the distortion, stronger the want.

Needs are more of a permanent distortion in attention cloud, that will alter your behaviour in the long and short-term, driving towards something in particular.

Preferably wants $\neq$ needs.

Most needs are relatively basic. Think breathing.

55:  $Relationships(x,y,z,t)$
