Let's play hypotheticals:
Say there was a magical island, in fact magical islands, plural, that existed beyond the horizon somewhere.
And say we knew about them but we couldn't reach them for whatever reason - maybe a large ogre halted our passage to said islands.
Would viewing images of these magical lands benefit our mental wellbeing, allow us to close our eyes and escape, providing a salve for dark times, or would it be better to forget that such a paradise even existed, 'cos being reminded is tantamount to torture?
Just thinking out loud.
No reason I ask the question just now.
