No hugging: are we living through a crisis of touch?
When did you last touch someone outside your family or intimate relationship? I don't mean a brush of the fingers when you took your parcel from the delivery guy. I mean: when did you pat the arm or back of a stranger, colleague or friend?
Injured Lower Senses Epidemic
Look, as a teacher, I encountered young children (7 and 8, just strating primary), who had lower senses...movement, touc h and so forth..that were terribly damaged. In the same way that it is a thousanbd percent better to put a baby through the birth canal to activate its skin rather than do a C-section, it is vital to provide beings with the proper and what used to be ordinary stimuli to activate these basic senses. Balance, movement, warmth...and btw one of worst things that can happen to a child is scootering its way to school. Let their feet touch the ground one at a time, in proper walking or running.
