Did you know?
Without some sort of signals from the outside world, cells apoptose. That is, without another cell sending them a hormone or an outside force pushing or pulling on them, cells die.
Obviously, this cellular phenomenon applies to us multi-cellular organisms, too. Sanctus Real’s simple lyrics in the song We Need Each Other express this idea. Humans were not created to live in isolation – we need friends and family to push our buttons, pull us out of bed, wrap us in bear hugs, and send us the message of, “You are not alone.” It’s how we survive.
