The birds awaken now at 4AM.
Is there a way to quantify all human, physical contact? (I mean everything from a handshake to a high five to a rugby scrum to sexual congress.) What then is the deficit in human contact that we have suffered globally over the last four weeks? And if that number is X, what will it be on New Years Eve, 2021?
The deficit will not be made up. "It deepens, like a coastal shelf." Will there be a cost to the collective human psyche? Is this the global catastrophe that Carl Jung foresaw, vividly, before his death?
