Good point. Maybe this is the reason many think computer people are
unemotional - they don't appear very sensual. In my opinion, much of the
scientific and computer world is more directed towards an epicurean form
of pleasure (the seeking of truth, friendship, understanding, elegant
structure etc.) than a sensual form of pleasure (with notable individual
exceptions, of course). But I don't know if this is just my perspective
or a more general view.
