Kinship

 Kinship = new favourite word. Tis synonymous with 'affinity' which is itself a synonym for 'force' and for 'chemical attraction' (according to my trusty thesaurus). Also, I had oodles of thesaurus fun looking up 'force'. Try it :)
 
"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." - Carl Jung. Think he was nearly there with that one.


Chemicals are how people become tribekin - prolonged exposure breeds affinity. Strong and persistant chemical reaction = omnipresent chemicals in blood = those not previously related by blood have a different chemical make up due to a person being present in their lives. If this isn't kin, I'm not sure what is. Gives a whole new meaning to friends being the family you choose imho.
