Does someone attending your gatherings virtually receive what someone attending physically attains? Is there a difference between attending an online class live and watching the recording later?
What is received is dependent on the state of the person – their intention, their level of connection, their etiquette and their perception. Some reach the level of being in complete physical proximity and others will be of lesser degrees.
