touch

I just watched part of a documentary about, you know, life the universe and everything. Also about how you never actually touch…anything.

It explained that the reason you don’t fall through the ground to the earth’s core is that the electro-magnetic force being given off by both you and the ground are much stronger than gravity.

So, the reason you can’t walk through a wall? The negative ions around your atoms are repelling and being repelled by the negative ions around the wall’s atoms.

Special k and I touched fingertips and he said: “So we’re not actually touching. We will never actually touch.”

And for a moment I could feel it – this giant force that our atoms exert against each other so that they will never touch.

A very, very odd feeling.
