There are five phases in a recreational experience.
Anticipation, Travel To, The Event, Travel From, Recollection
(This is known as a linear exerience or a linear transition.)
Anticipation is only one fifth of the the experience. To state that anticipation is what makes us human is not necessairly a strong premise. I would even say anticipation is an incidental. When you finish this project I would very much like to read the transcript. (Thank you.) There are no quotations on the subject of anticipation in the Pocket Book of Quotations. Good Luck and May the Force be with You!
