Humans crave. Cravings for food and drink. Mostly they crave a connection. Children seek a parent’s touch. They play tag or doctor, a chance to touch. If a gentle hand is not found, a punch will do. As adults, the craving remains. Connections of the minds? Making love? Beatings? All serve to make the human connection. A baby, deprived of touch, fails to thrive. An adult shunned, withers and dies.
