Seeing in High Definition

Staring at a magazine ad for an 85 inch high definition television while eating my simple breakfast of boiled eggs, toast and coffee, I can't help but wonder if we've gone a little crazy. I can't help but think we're hungry for making our digital images seem "more real" when reality is all around us. I look up and notice that our sliding glass door is probably a little bigger than the advertised television, and the image is real-life clear. What's more, when I finish my breakfast, I can walk over to it, slide back the glass, and enter an ever greater reality. I'm not trying criticize people with big TVs; I'm just wondering out loud about priorities.
