An essential aspect of human experience is boredom

It is an emotion, and is cerebral and situational

A sense of emptiness and isolation

Monotony causes it

More of aristocratic attribute boredom is

In the midst of too much one suddenly get bored

A poor man can’t afford it; less pervasive in simpler cultures

Not always a waste of time

Gives opportunity for introspection

Work boredom is conscious

Leisure boredom is unconscious

Both are the causes of distraction

Distractions often help

By providing non-demanding break

Boredom is expensive

Not everyone can afford it
