Every Man is an Island

Sensations, feelings, insights, all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never experiences themselves. By nature itself, every embodied spirit (literal meaning) is doomed to suffer and enjoy life in solitude. But humans can't stand being solitary and try to quell the feeling of "self" with company. We have a subconscious desire to have a universal mind to share what's truly in our spirit/soul/mind and to know what others are thinking, doing, and feeling. It's ironic ahaha


  1. I believe no human is an island: we're all somehow connected to each other, and we can all communicate our most secret and deepest feelings to each other. We just choose not to, since there's only a handful of people we want to admit stuff to.

    But I do like how you think, it's kinda nice. Hopeful, even.
