With that infrequent blend of poet and scientist, he describes in relocating phrases the “vascular see-saw of all human discussion- blood strain emerging after we communicate to others, and falling lower than baseline degrees after we take heed to others or attend to significant other animals and the remainder of the wildlife.

Echoing the time commemorated Biblical fact, he pleads with us to acknowledge the knowledge that we're certainly “our brother’s keeper,” and that failure to acknowledge that straightforward fact forces us into communicative exile, and eventually untimely demise. actually, he concludes during this relocating e-book, that “dialogue is the elixir of existence, and loneliness its deadly poison.” the alternative we are facing is kind of transparent: we needs to both discover ways to dwell together-or we will die in advance, alone.
