We all need to be touched by others.

When we touch and hold another,

we affirm each other's humanity.

This is the most basic instinct of the flesh.

We all need to be touched.



Before man became homo sapiens...

...there was homo erectus.

But some anthropologists believe homo erectus

was not a separate species from homo sapiens...

...but only a transitional phase.

ln other words:

we are all... homos.
