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?
