  1. For some time we seem to have been heading towards a meeting of minds rather than physical interaction. There’s nothing like the human touch. When dance partners stopped holding each other on the dance floor, how much they missed!

    This meeting of minds that technology brings, brings many of us closer together in both an intellectual sense and an emotional one. We can become friends or antagonists, we can get to know and accept how other people think without giving them a blood nose.

    Is it good? I don’t know. We always regret losing the best of the past.
