The power is in the connection

You know, that brain of yours, that amazing tool that employs over 100 bilions of agents, capable of over 1,000 connections each – without a formal conductor I may add – that can encode, organize, give meaning, retrieve, and retain without limit? Yes, that brain of yours is actually not limited to connecting with your own experiences! You are naturally wired to feel what others feel. You have neurons imitating how it feels to do what someone else is doing: mirror neurons. You observe therefore you feel – and learn! You strive because you can imitate.

In short:

Your brain is more sophisticated than any technological device you are buying on the market – and no upgrade necessary!

Feeling what others around you are feeling is much more satisfying than any media can be – no matter how social that media is being called.

Your connection to others is not your weakness. Your interconnection to and your interdependence with your significant others, your family, your tribes, and other communities are as powerful and as exposed as your spine is.

Take care of one another. It is your – or should I say “our” – utmost strength.
