Imagine how it feels to run your hand over the flesh of another human being, to feel the roundness of the thigh, the buttock, the chest, to massage the arch of a foot. To run the fingertips along the side of another’s face and feel their expression, to know the feeling of another person doing the same to ourselves. To experience another person that deeply both physically and psychologically is to at once understand the uniqueness of someone’s individual experience and to be completely and fully human. It is simultaneously an intimate personal experience, and ubiquitous. This is what it means to feel a connection with each other and ourselves.
