Are we all connected?

Does anyone of you watch the new mystery series with Kiefer Sutherland called Touch? What a great show, isn’t it? About a boy who doesn’t talk but has a lot to tell. It needed a while for his father but now he can hear him. It’s not easy to deal with that, a boy who doesn’t speak is a boy with a problem because he isn’t like anybody else.

But this boy, Jake, sees and knows everything that was in the past, is in the present and will be in the future. With all kinds of numbers he sees that so many guys all over the world are connected. Someone is predestined to meet someone else, become part of his or her life, even if it’s just for a moment. Everything has to happen in a special way and Jake has to take care of all that. It seems like he is the manager and has to organize everything. Quite a hard job.

But it lets me think about the connection. Are we really all connected in some way? And I don’t refer to the Internet by that. Is it predicted that some guys have to meet? Have you sometimes the feeling like you have to do something, but you don’t know how? Or that you feel you have to talk to a person you see more and more often, that changed your life in some way and you want to thank him for being part of your life? That you sometimes see more and more things in him which are close to your attitudes? Or is this then only imagination?

Certainly is the Internet a great chance to stay in contact with people all over the world. Keep in touch with your family and friends and meet people you probably would have never met otherwise. The Internet is the proof that we are connected - if we want to or not. It’s a great feeling to get and keep in touch with. It makes such things like a flash mob possible. That everyone is doing the same at the same time and that keeps us together, makes us a big force and unity.

At the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo, there were these two Norwegian guys called Madcon who sang their song ‘Glow’ and all people all over the world had the chance to watch on youtube how to dance to that song
before the show was aired. So then while it was on air in all European countries they could join in the dance in front of their TV. Everyone was connected.
