Heschong: "We need an object for our affections, something identifiable on which to focus attention. If there is something very individual and particular that we consider responsible for our well-being -- a stove that is the source of all warmth, for example -- we can focus appreciation on that one thing. But if nothing seems to be responsible -- [if] thermal comfort is a constant condition, constant in both space and time, it becomes so abstract that it loses its potential to focus affection."
