Right, in this particular case the nerve-cells of my skin that tell
me,that this wetness is cold and the prickling sensation somewhat
uncomfortable. The example is in fact very apt: Who wouldn't go out of
the rain if he has a choice, so isn't he really stupid who stays
there? This is the simplistic appeal of Barry. On a second thought you
can see, that your reaction is more of a biological response, filtered
through your present mental conditioning.

No, its the rain which makes you wet. The rain makes you go inside.

The universe wanted him to go inside.
