Question: What does luxury mean to you?

Scully:    Luxury.  Luxury is a question of time because life is time.  Luxury is time and health.  If you have time you can think and experience simultaneously and you have time to use that and I think that’s the greatest gift you can have, if you are fortunate enough to be sitting in the nice body.

Question: What is your version of simple luxury?

Scully:    Well, before I had a situation that I have now, I would say the ability to go to cinema was a big luxury because it cost money.  I think there’s problem of having to acquire is something that we should resist.  And we are terrorized into acquiring because we are terrorized by the consumer index.  So, it goes back to this other point that I’m talking about which is material growth and over population is going to lead to a cataclysm at some point it must because Earth can’t hold a lot.  It can’t endure the punishment that we inflict on it and I think if you look at what you have in terms of an environment just to go for a walk doesn’t cost anything.  To go for a walk and look at the sky doesn’t cost you anything and that’s a beautiful moment of self locations, self revelation.
