How our relationships form our identity
the connection to gravity is fascinating. reminds me of David Chapman's idea about how meaning is not subjective or objective but _interactive_: a result of interactions between each other and the environment (https://meaningness.com/objective-subjective). just as objects interact by curving the shared medium of spacetime, humans interact by molding each other and the world, in a shared activity of meaning-making.
An absolutely gripping post yet again, Sherry!
I believe this also applies to how a lot of teenagers aren't fools unlike they've been told. The general buzz from adults on how teen romances are silly and not serious, therefore they can't have real consequences, is very oblivious of them to say the least. Relationships do construct the fabric of our reality -- and can do so at any point in time! You have explained it so well.

Well put! (Was Pavlov conditioning the dog or was the dog conditioning Pavlov?) Oh, and yes, humans are definitely social animals:)
