  While he clearly is influencing a lot of people (me included), what I
 was wondering about was his ideas about comparing the amount of flow
 experienced in different cultures and evaluating them from that
 respect. That is one of his most daring ideas in the current
 relativist climate, and I think it would be interesting to see the
 results (both in themselves and on other academic fields). >>

    His ideas on the subject of cultural relativism sound to me like a
valuable and basic insight that badly needs further exploration.
    I am thinking that skeleton needs fleshing out.
