There's a theory that matter only becomes matter by virtue if its relationship with other matter.
The word 'monk' comes from the Latin for 'alone'. Yet monks live in community because they discover themselves by bumping into other monks discovering themselves.
We exist only because of our relationship with another.
We need encounters with other particles to define our reality.
The more that we bump into each other the more we bring ourselves into existence.
The more we become who we are.
