Cultural Differences
Source: "Language Is More than Just Words", Alix Henley & Judith Schott

In some cultures, looking people in the eye is assumed to indicate honesty and straightforwardness; in others it is seen as challenging and rude. Most people in Arab cultures share a great deal of eye contact and may regard too little as disrespectful. In English culture, a certain amount of eye contact is required, but too much makes many people uncomfortable. Most English people make eye contact at the beginning and then let their gaze drift to the side periodically to avoid 'staring the other person out'.

In South Asian and many other cultures direct eye contact is generally regarded as aggressive and rude. In some cultures and religious groups eye contact between men and women is seen as flirtatious or threatening. Men of these communities who do not make eye contact with women are not usually rude or evasive, but respectful.

Different cultures also vary in the amount that it is acceptable to watch other people. Some experts call these high-look and low-look cultures. British culture is a low-look culture. Watching other people, especially strangers, is regarded as intrusive. People who are caught 'staring' usually look away quickly and are often embarrassed. Those being watched may feel threatened and insulted. In high-look cultures, for example in southern Europe, looking or gazing at other people is perfectly acceptable; being watched is not a problem.

I have a question for any metaphysics experts. I mentioned this to someone who is very knowledgeable some years back and he looked confused but nervous at the same time. If you meet someone and its eyes to eyes like a pulling energy towards that person but you intentionally stop it by looking away what does that mean? When I asked a somewhat expert years ago he said that was IT. After hearing that I proceeded to ask him what after that with another man after hearing his voice there was a feeling of flying down to him but yet again stopped it he looked confused and a bit scared and nervous. Anyone have a metaphyscial answer to these events?


IMHO, this post of yours simply reminds me of someone with alzheimer's disease. Sorry but, what can I say? I don't think it has anything to do with Metaphysics.

It is metaphysics. Its a union thing but may be on one level but not all levels or it wouldnt have stopped no matter what. I got the answer. And I am not old enough to have alzheimers disease.
