I happened to miss-click on an social network search the other day and up came a 'strange' face. Blurry, nothing much to look at, his profile was
sketchy and he’d have to be my ‘friend’ to learn more but what the heck! I sent him a message.
He wrote back and parks began to fly. Not even past our second correspondence and I found myself looking forward to hearing from him, thought about
him through the day and made a note to share with him this thing or that I experienced. What was he writing me before I even had a chance to? He
wrote: ‘I’ve been thinking of you.’ ’I wanted to share this with you.’ ‘Isn’t this great.’
There was a connection. A click. From word go.
Now let’s focus on another scenario.
- Here on ATS a friend reminded me of so-and-so’s birthday. Well, he is a ‘so-and-so’ I thought with a sneer and begrudgingly sent him a note
of felicitations. No ‘click’ there on any level.
- In another genre all together? I got some info I'd asked for from someone who I know but honestly - I wouldn’t miss if they dropped off into the
etherworld. I’ll get back to them tomorrow. Maybe.
Summed up? I’ve never met any of them, I correspondence with all three via the computer - but my ‘reaction’ to each is as diverse as night and
So my question is this.
What's the Spark!
That instant connection between people who’ve never met, never shared a voice conversation, and don’t know,
well, even how the other person smells! Nope, can’t blame this one of pheromones folks!
So, if we can’t point to pheromones or some other equally elusive but powerful driving force that brings people together then tell me? WHAT IS IT?
Because regardless the connection IS there!
What’s your explanation?
Could it be past life memories? Soul groups? Or just something - WONDERFUL - we can’t even put our finger on yet?
I’m looking forward to hearing your stories, and your explanations!
