HYPER * SANITY * '' '''


MARK MY WORDS, MARK  EVERY WORD THAT : In the times ahead, The World can only retain its sanity through the Students. Welcome to The World Students Society. 

For example : Take  Modi Jees Mode of ''Demolition'' of The Great India. What sufferings, what misery, what future?

FOR EXAMPLE: DR. TIFFANY FIELD CALLS TOUCH ''the mother of all senses,'' and in her 2001 book, ''Touch,'' she argues that American society was already dangerously deprived, long before the coronavirus deprived.

Dr. Neel Burton, a psychiatrist and the author of the books ''Hypersanity : Thinking Beyond Thinking'' and ''Heaven and Hell : The Psychology of the Emotions,'' believes touch is the most neglected of our senses.

In 2017, Dr. Burton, who lives in Oxford, England, wrote an article in Psychology Today about where that neglect comes from and the sometimes cultural aversion to touch. This aversion can also dictate, he said, when and how intensely touch hunger may kick in for someone : age, genetics, coping mechanism and the frequency of touch pre-pandemic and the other determining factors.

TREVOR ROBERTS - A PSYCHOTHERAPIST IN BOURNEMOUTH, England, is worried about people getting used to being alone, isolated and untouched. ''Not to touch will become normal, not to visit family or just talk to them on Skype,'' he said. ''There is no substitution for human touch.  

Back in June, a few hundred epidemiologists and infectious disease experts interviewed by the New York Times said that it would most likely be a year or more before they would feel comfortable hugging or shaking the hands of a friend.

Thirty-nine percent said it would most likely be there to 12 months [Also of more : Many said they never shake hands anyway.]

Even for the non epidemiologists among us everyday touch has become a source of stress - and a negotiation of personal boundaries - in a way that it never was before the coronavirus pandemic.

Some people have gone many months without touch : It was one of the first things we were cautioned against, even before social distancing, masks and stay-at-home-orders became the new normal.

And eventually, its absence can give way to touch deprivation, which can led to health issues like anxiety and depression, according to Tiffany Field, the director of the Touch Research Institute of the  University of Miami, who has a Ph.D in developmental psychology.

Dr. Field calls touch ''the mother of all senses,'' and  in her  2001 book, ''Touch,'' she argues that American society was already dangerously touch deprived, long before the coronavirus arrived.

When asked what specific touch they missed the most, the answer was identical for everyone I interviewed;: hugs. Anita Bright, 51, a professor at Portland State University in Oregon who recalled being unable to hug a student who defended her dissertation in early March, said she especially missed the tighter, longer hugs that accompany a reunion.

Jo Carter, 50, a project manager at the  University of Wisconsin in Madison who lives alone, said that, pre-pandemic, she would regularly get massages and pedicures to have consistent touch. During the lockdown, she found herself crankier and more restless than normal, ''hungry'' almost, she said.

In addition to sleeping alone a weighted blanket, Ms. Carter has begun cuddling the teddy bear she has had since grade school.

Sarak Kay Hanley, 41, who works in banking compliance in Oregon City Gre, had a dream recently in which she was touching her friend freshly shaved head, which she had seen on a video call. She instantly got a tingly, A.S.M.R. like tingling in her hands, remembering viscerally the sensation tiny hairs create.

''It feels warm and prickly if you rub one way, and soft the other,'' said Ms. Hanley, who used to work as a hairstylist. People with buzzed heads rub them against your hand like a cat being petted, she said. She described touch deprivation as a ''feeling of being totally disconnected from understanding how I felt physically.''

For Jenna Cohan, 32, who does advocacy work against domestic and sexual violence in Portland, Ore, the reminders were continual. She would see dogs walking outside her window and realize constantly that she couldn't be outside and petting them.

Dr. Bright said it's not rare to see the children of her colleagues and students venture onto a Zoom screen and casually touch or embrace a parent.

In the beginning of the pandemic, she found herself high-fiving low-hanging tree branches in a park near where she takes her daily walks, she said. She even has a favorite tree in her neighborhood park because it was often the only living thing she saw every day.

''It is the same body sensation that I would have in high-fiving a human,'' she said.
