Universal Lonerhood - We All May Be Loners

Updated: 3 days ago

We are all loners because we are all alone. Let me explain.

Loners are beings who are continuously alone, distinct from togetherness. When you are alone, you are separated from other beings.

However, we are always separated from each other. Even if we were put in a very small room, we would still be each on our own, because our individuality logically makes us separated from each other. The fact that my consciousness is not your consciousness leads to the conclusion that we are alone, i.e., separated, from each other.

The desert does not exist. It is only a collective imagery of grains of sand, which are also separated from each other. The fact that they are separated from each other proves that they are alone even if they are to be categorized as a "desert." The same applies to human collectives. Even if we constantly interact and socialize with each other, we still remain detached from one another.

Loners are also detached from each other. Therefore, we are all loners by logic. There is no actual entity called "society" in the World Beyond The Mind. The World Beyond The Mind is a world composed of individual atoms, connected with each other only through interaction, but not through being. Communication, too, is an illusion, embodied only through sensual symbolism we were taught throughout our lives, as our graduation to the collective Mental Dimension.

The fact that we are constantly in communication with each other does not make us into a single, individual being.

Thus, according to this logic, it is inevitable to come to the conclusion that we are all alone due to our distinction, physical separation, and individuality. Togetherness does not exist in the World Beyond The Mind. There may be constant interaction in this world, but it does not automatically lead to its individuation. Where objects are built and collapsed, the atoms remain. The same goes for us individuals and the collectives we form in the Mental Dimension.

What creates the sense of "togetherness" is not something that exists beyond our consciousness. Beyond consciousness, we are mere physical objects like any other object in existence, with the special exception of having the ability to move and act autonomously.

For the sake of automation, consciousness is there, and to ensure the survival of said automation, consciousness collaborates with others, forms alliances, and reacts to any other consciousness. In that regard, we are pretty much stuck in our own "mental prisons," whether we are alone in them or with other minds, but beyond these "prisons," we are all alone within our own physical position.

Assuming this argument is true, then those who seek pure hermitage do not necessarily need to abandon all of civilization. All that is needed is to reduce the number of people within your "mental prison," whether they are in your physical vicinity or even people online from around the world. As long as you are mentally capable of being alone as you already are physically, then being a loner, semi- or pure hermit should not be a problem if you have reasonable finances to assure your survival.

This is my definition of "loner" according to my philosophy, Solitary Individualism. Feel free to disagree with me, because philosophy is there to make us think. From my own experience, I can tell you that unique premises are often met with outrageous reception, whether that reception is positive or negative.

People may believe you are either a master thinker or think of you to be just a senile man or woman. Whatever the reception may be, the philosopher must work on to find insight, even if it appears eccentric in nature. This is because those who philosophize well, threaten the current perception people have towards things and beings.
