Touching

Prof.Dr. Philip Moriarty says that touching is the point where attracting and repelling come into equilibrium. What do you think?

I can't tell what your definitions are here. Are we speaking of attraction/repulsion in a physics sense or a psychological sense? Do you have a link to Prof. Moriarty's writings - SPCF format requires links, on science topics.

Doesn't work for magnets, billiard balls or boxing gloves and boxer's faces.

I was so tempted in my first post to ask if Prof. Moriarty had survived his fall using attraction and repulsion.

Just remember: be they ever so nimble, there's no police like Holmes.

Groan accepted. The pun originates with an anonymous Conan Doyle fan and made its way to a magazine or joke anthology - source lost in the memory fog.
