    Basic Human Needs

    Nothing psychological or scientific; no Freud, Jung or Maslow; just a few basic, fundamental needs: air, water, fire, sleep, food, shelter, privacy, etc. There's one that's seldom if ever listed. Care to guess? And no, it's not a game.

    ... "attention" (JS357); "Alcohol, chocolate and sex." (Johnny); "a pillow" (Hand of Hecate); "love" (empovsun);
    "To be needed" (Andy);

    ... attention, love and to be needed come the closest. It's a basic daily need we seldom realize we're having....
    Thanks for your page one thread christening replies.

    God can fill that need. My guess is "companionship".

    Horizontal need, rather than vertical?

    True, it's a basic need; think of one that's more nuanced and specific.

    Also, a real need... but 'hope' for what?
