The first level in the gangster Mafia hierarchy, according to the movie Donnie Brasco. In that movie, Al Pacino explains that there are four levels of Mafia guy: Connected guy, Made Guy (aka Wiseguy), Skipper, and Boss. Connected Guy is a guy who is vouched for by a Made Guy. He is referred to as "a friend of mine" by said Made Guy, but is not yet part of the Mafia yet.

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

Being 'connected' refers to people who are in touch with their surroundings, a sense of true self, and have a deep, instinctual empathy for fellow human beings. They are often perceived as 'odd' or eccentric by others but are extremely intelligent and often misunderstood and underestimated.

'Connected' people will frequently feel deep sadness, crippling frustration, an un-expressable rage and/or proactive rebellion when presented with the un-justices of the world, prejudice, discrimination, fickle bullshit, and the cruelties and atrocities committed by their fellow human beings.

Some people believe that everyone is potentially 'connected', depending on whether they open their minds to their capacity to connect to themselves, fellow humans and the world around them; whilst others will maintain that tests have shown only 2% of the worlds population demonstrate the associated qualities and characteristics of someone who is 'connected' and is a result of genetic trends and programming.

Many 'connected' people have been burdened with the term 'gifted and talented', whilst this term identifies their inquisitive minds and ability to learn, it can act to segregate someone from their peers, and encourage them to develop a sense of social awkwardness, perceived aloofness and/ or extreme bouts of arrogance.
They're not odd, they're just connected.
