The need to communicate with others is an innate need for most of us. Fine, when they are near to you, but what happens when they are a distance away? We have to depend on technology, whether it be a telephone, ZOOM meeting, Facetime, Email. If we rely on technology, invariably it fails us, in one way or another, frustrating us and causing stress and anxiety.
Just suppose, we are able to communicate without technology, just using the power of our minds.

Having a meeting (or class) with a group of people, would not depend on the ever-failing internet, just think of who needs to be there and away you go.
There would need to be some restrictions however, because no-one wants to be disturbed mid-way through a box set, by someone wanting to discuss their problems.
