Distance and touch

The other and intimate space are deeply interrelated in two ways: intimate space appears at the exact moment that the other appears; and secondly, the other appears as space or distance, which is said to be a part of the “Self”. The second proposed interrelation brings further consequences. The other does not appear only as space, but also through and as an overwhelming feeling. Hall ascribes the cause of this overwhelming feeling to the “greatly stepped-up sensory inputs.”-james-mt.blogspot.com
