Is a hand that is being held supported in the action of holding for its own increasing weakness? Or is a double support of holding just twice as strong? A hand that is held by another is the beginning of a system. Why would a hand be held by another? Out of love and affection? Or more out of pity and compassion? Held hands are a hot-blooded structure.
