Becoming larger

We think we are delimited by other persons around us: my rights end where your nose begins. In actuality we are extended by those around us when we meet. We become larger as we allow others in.

At least as much as we shrink. It might depend upon the character of the meeting: if we meet with negative intent (this might be I-It), then we shrink; if with I-You, then we have the capacity to expand. And if we meet with G*d we surely expand.
