    You have never touched anything

    or anyone in your entire life. And you never will either. The *touch* you are feeling is actually the repelling force of the edge o your skin molecules against the object's repelling force.

    and how it works. I think that there are no definite areas of science, but they all are interdependent. Granted, science can only explain so much.
