There’s No Such Thing As Boredom

Boredom is, despite the name, rather interesting. It's a state of mind we generally seek to avoid. That feeling of listlessness, a lack of all stimulation. But within that empty brain space, mysterious intrigue festers, and things begin to gestate. Thinking about boredom is the perfect way to escape boredom, and being bored is an ideal way to escape thoughtlessness.
