Learning To Interact Correctly

632.3Question: There is what is called the Dunbar number, which is the number of social connections that a person can keep in his head.

An English anthropologist, Robin Dunbar, determined that in any given situation, 150 is the number of people that makes an active group of contacts with whom a person can interact at one time.

Neurophysiologists say that if we lack social connections, we begin to create them artificially.

Why does a person need such a social network in his head?

Answer: The fact is that we are created as social beings who have to interact with each other and create a certain field of communication between us and even above us. This is what makes us human; otherwise we are animals. After all, there is no “human” level in nature. There are only three levels: inanimate, vegetative, and animate, and human is something above nature.

That is, we want to rise to this level, and we have certain beginnings. But in order to create this level, it is first necessary to learn how to communicate and interact correctly. We don’t have this yet in our society. It is barely trying to rise from the animate degree to the level of “man.” Therefore such beginnings are appreciated.
