on Intimacy III

Intimacy is merely a term to indicate a closeness between individuals. When closeness begins to develop between two people, it would naturally constitute a unique form of intimacy by virtue of the fact that the two people themselves are utterly unique. What’s more, the particulars of the situation and context within which they begin to get close are also necessarily unique. We would expect, then, that the intimacy that develops between two people would be distinct: a product of all of the unique factors that are in play. In reality, however, people evince not even an iota of such uniqueness in their relationships.
