  • I've read that you transfer energy to objects you wear. Does that also happen if you sit too long on a bench? How long does there need to be contact? If I sit on this bench, would I absorb the stories of Munich or even stories from the tree that sacrificed it's life to be a bench like in that movie the red violin? Would I pass on my stories to others if they sit and absorb them or do my stories intermingle with everyone else's becoming a stew of information overwhelming the sitter making sure they don't stay too long?
