"Getting high is information gathering, staying high is the result of transmuting information into living experience".
This is in context of post survival living, when one is no longer in survival mode, living mode is activated. But to stabilise this way of life, one must have their basic needs fulfilled.
Therefore - "To fly higher, plant your feet firmly in the ground".
