The Tao of Catch:

"Queryboy" asks:
  • Is it some kind of communication ritual?
  • What gets communicated?
  • Is it a bonding mechanism?
  • It is also to exclude others. Does something pass through the person's mind as he tosses the ball back and forth?
  • Is there a fantasy in the mind perhaps involving some idol warming up before a major league game?
  • Or is the mind blank?
  • I'd guess blank. But does anyone know? Can anyone tell me?"
Dear Queryboy: An interesting question. I think ALL of your questions get an affirmative. Leading psycho-cyber experts also speculate that "catch" occurs in cyberspace.
