Modern friendship - the Silent Friend
Very rarely do they speak on the phone, and they are
even less likely to meet face to face. One in 3 people
admit they have "silent friends" and say they make
contact with them up to 4 times a day.
The Science of Friendship
The many factors that influence an individual’s fate to meet
an acquaintance and decide to become a friend are
impossible to capture, but physicists have done it anyway
and “with near precision”.
“The idea behind our model, though simple, is different
from the usual paradigmatic approaches,” Gonzalez told
PhysOrg.com. “We consider a system of mobile agents
(students), which at the beginning have no acquaintances;
by moving in a continuous space they collide with each
other, forming their friendships.”
Using physical science to understand human
interactions? Well, it was Social Statistics that guided the
development of the kinetic theory of gases. I’m not sure
what that means – but I feel a poem coming on – We are
like molecular gases in the atmosphere…
