Nice to talk to you again Heruka.
But my view...I have always had a vision of a person condemned to being able to read the thoughts of others....finding most all after a month or so quite quite the same and thusly a month or so later....bored to death with that thing, and wishing to turn it off.
People are undoubtly nice, some very nice, all want happiness. But interesting......I suspect not.
A occasional hidden jem or jewel of interest, but very very rare by my take.
Mostly it's just me me me.
The subways are great equilizers, and that is a important lesson which those in cars do not have. Cars are quite the extended ego of one sort or another.
Rarely being just transport. Subways are indeed just transport. So a bit closer to the real I'd say...which is a good thing.
So I would not do such a thing. Many years ago occasionally I was in a position to beg and things of that sort. Now that I found greatly interesting. Caught in the act of giving(helping another to help us is the greatest gift).....most remarkable things would occasionally ensue. They became beyond themselves in the giving. So I found it very interesting. They became interesting with their acts of compassion.
JUst people in a subway riding a bus or some sort.....naaa.
