this is interesting. i don't know if i think it's possible to "

create content in
the digital space that induces the same physiological responses we
experience when connecting with people (or art, or literature, or
loved ones) offline"

Developer(+1)

I don't know that it is possible either, but I do think it's a worthwhile goal. Our lives are so wrapped up in technology and the internet that creating digital content -- games! communities! art! -- that strives to recreate the positive benefits of human interaction is not only important but integral to our experience.

We may be a long way off from technology that allows for this, but as a creator and writer,  feel it is my job to be constantly working towards making as real a connection as possible with people that engage with my work.
