During major worldwide sports events, some hotels promise a novelty: You will definitely, and not at all, hear about that event in their hotel.

They provide a place to go where none of the staff will talk about it, it will not be on any screen, and no sports newspaper with that event will be present.

They create a sanctuary of no information.

Thinking happens best without new input: At some point, we have to create this space and time for us to make sense of what we already have.
