Being attracted to something vs someone is why you seek out things that are new. When you're attention is drawn to something that is higher then indifference, you can feel it in your tailbone as an attentive attraction. This doesn't just have to be in your vision but sound as well as you stare blindly. Something new that is enjoyed above indifference can be as powerful as cleaning your room or re arranging in making you happy. Attraction in your vision can be shameful and painful with anger when it is for a person and other people are around. You might see a girl in your vision and keep her there and think other people saw you staring and get paranoid or competitive. People don't generally want the attraction of strangers in modern times. When you stand amongst strangers you may quickly look away at something if you even make eye contact. Depression comes from attraction to people who aren't there and the cure for it is attraction to things that are new and above indifference.

What about thinking about people from the past that you lost contact with?

I suppose that can be depressing if they didn't like you very much and you liked them more. I've always been a believer in Bender's advice, 'make new friends but keep the old, one's silver and the other's gold'.
