"An approaching body produces one kind of emotional line, a receding or departing body another; the meeting of two forces produces visual, kinesthetic, and emotional effects, with a world of suggestibility around them like a penumbra that evokes many ideas and emotions whenever these forms are manipulated. Basic human gestures assume, therefore, an almost mystic power. The simple maneuver of turning the face away, for example, removes personality, relationship. Not only that, it seems to alter the relation of the individual to present time and present place, to make here-and-now other-where and other-time. It also shifts the particular personality to the general and the symbolic. This is the power of the human face and the human regard, and the meeting of the eyes is probably as magic a connection as can be made on this earth, equal to any amount of electrical shock or charge. It represents the heart of dynamism, life itself. The loss of that regard reduces all connections to nothingness and void."
