Re: Is the holodeck really "relaxing"?

I believe...Spock brought up this oddity in non-Vulcan nature best:

"On my rest rest--to cease using energy. To me, it is quite illogical to...'run up and down on green grass', using energy...when one should be conserving it."
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
--David Mamet
