"Wanting connections, we found connections always, everywhere, and between everything. The world exploded in a whirling network of kinships, where everything pointed to everything else, everything explained everything else ..." -- From Foucault's Pendulum, Umberto Eco, 1988

The intersection, my favourite type of connection

Definition

An act of connecting two or more physical entities in a physical sense or connecting concepts in memory or imagination. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connection [May 2004]

Free association (psychology)

Free association (Psychodynamic theory) is a technique used in psychology, devised by Sigmund Freud. In it, patients are asked to continually relate anything which comes into their minds, regardless of how superficially unimportant or potentially embarrassing the memory threatens to be. This technique assumes that all memories are arranged in a single associative network, and that sooner or later the subject will stumble across the crucial memory. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_association_(psychology) [Nov 2006]
