Solitude

 

We are the most globally inter connected people in the history of our planet.  Statisticians have shown that for the vast majority of our world, connected to the Internet in any way, we are only six steps, intermediary people, away from being able to connect to everyone anywhere.  I am in contact with somebody who is in contact with somebody else who is in contact with yet somebody else and at the sixth stage, the population of our planet is connected.  In the last 10 days we have been one or two contacts away from people talking to us from a bunker in Ukraine.  In the past two years we’ve been a couple of contacts away from hearing from people in all countries suffering in different ways from the impact of Covid and lockdown.  Incredible.

And this global fabric of connections has occurred only in the past couple of decades.  Through our devices: Smart phones, tablets, laptops, whatever.
