Practical Applications

Haircut: Andy did mine. At times Andy's hand and scissors disappeared into the Void here; then his whole arm; then both hands and his head. Several times his whole arm; then both hands and his head.

Finally he became smaller and stood making satisfied expressions. Never has having a haircut been so enjoyable or so enlightening. R

Not exactly fun, but then I recalled that I didn't have to perceive it all that way, and gave it up.
