    The article I'm reading quotes a man describing his evening with a woman:

    "There was a total intellectual connection. I felt there was an emotional connection too, at least on my part there was, and we also had a physical connection."

    It got me thinking about "connections" we have with people, animals, inanimate objects, whatever. Are all these "connections" just the same thing with a different description? Are these elements of a much longer list of connections? Are some of them prerequisites for others?

    Is it all just a buncha new age bunk?

    I would say "spiritual" but you would laugh and ruin my enjoyment of my chosen evening adult beverage...

    Without getting into heavily religious territory, in what ways would you say that "spiritual" differs emotional or intellectual?

    That discussion would require me to think and you'll have to wait until Monday morning for that. At 5PM Friday the thinking stops and the drinking begins...

    Don't think, just drink.

    I think it's when you'll only bang someone after having copious amounts of the heavy stuff?

    Or is that only connecting when spiritual . . . or spirited?

    It's a higher proof alternative to beer goggles.

    I feel like I connect with people in different ways. I have a connection with several of you here, but it is much different than a connection I have with other people.

    Is connection dictated by the medium, the subject, or the receiver?

    If I feel a connection with my cat (strictly platonic, for the record) but the cat doesn't feel anything back for me beyond food provider, litter box servant, is it still a connection? Is it worth less than its fully requited equivalent?

    I'm still waiting for details on the "physical connection" of the couple in your OP...

    I'm sorry, did I explain my occupation on Friday nights?

    I feel a spiritual connection to all women I find attractive :)
    It's a bio electric trick of hormones and pheromones.
    Once the hormone rush wears off, I think to myself,
    "Why did I ever see in her? What a bore!".

    Geez. I tried to read that article but it was like Dickens. I couldn't make it past the introduction.

    It has nothing to do with interpersonal connections and mostly deals with a suspicious death originally attributed to a shark attack. The quote was from the last known person to interact with the shark attack/secret foul play victim prior to her death.
