We’re all CONNECTED!


Dear reader, my dear person. How are you doing today?

Did you know that you and I were connected? Perhaps, you won’t believe me. Perhaps, you think that you’re an individual individual, completely separate from others.

But let me tell you… You and I… You and that anchor speaking on TV  in your room right now… You and that kid on the Georgia’s Got Talent show… are connected.

This is not just another New Age concept. This is not yet another “we are one”, because I like it this way. This is a scientific fact. Listen on.

It’s a small world

In 1967 , American psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted an experiment. He sent packages to 160 random people in Nebraska and asked them to forward the packages to a certain stockbroker in Boston.  However, there was one condition. Participants could only send the package directly to an individual they knew personally, on a first-name basis.

The experiment showed that it took an average of 5 people to get the package delivered. The phenomenon became known as “six degrees of separation”. Further experiments by other researchers confirmed that each and every person in the world is connected to each and every other person in the world via 5 (according to Microsoft, 6) people.

Now, isn’t that cool? 🙂

“Yolki”, the movie

In the movie “Yolki” (the Russian for “Christmas trees”), a little girl tells her friends some white lies about her father being none other than President of Russia himself.  It’s New Year’s Eve, and the little girl’s “boyfriend” sets on a mission to make the President of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev, say a particular code phrase during his annual New Year’s public address, which would prove to the little girl’s friends that her dad is indeed President.

And, the way the boy decides to do it is by implementing, in practice, the theory of six degrees of separation.

We are all one. Remember!

♥ Peace ♥

  1. we are one , heard this before and many times but ask anyone ,its difficult to explain and understand.how my do’s effects others when that someone is not at all related to me by miles.but what we do and what we don’t do does affect someone somewhere in this world.legendry actor Amir Khan did mention in his new talk show that what ever i do and the decision i make will have an impact on someone in this world.if i think like this that i won’t matter to anyone or how does it make a difference to someone ,does it matter to me ? but it does matter to me . yes we are all connected by someone way or another.

  2. No man is an island,
    Entire of itself.
    Each is a piece of the continent,
    A part of the main.
    If a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less.
    As well as if a promontory were.
    As well as if a manor of thine own
    Or of thine friend’s were.
    Each man’s death diminishes me,
    For I am involved in mankind.
    Therefore, send not to know
    For whom the bell tolls,
    It tolls for thee.
    – John Dunne
