  1. Hello! I believe that a person lives life alone and independently, and everything else will be coming and going for him. Spiritually, a person is one. He is alone with his thoughts. Physically, the person is not alone. He is surrounded by friends, relatives, family, and so on. Man is a biosocial being. Without the existence of society, there will be no man as a person, and without man there will be no society. That is, it is impossible to come to a specific opinion on this issue. I'll sum it up: yes and no.

  2. Yes and no.

    Yes, because only the person himself (and then with a properly developed skill) knows the full range and all the nuances of his own feelings, emotions, dreams, desires, needs, fantasies… Much of this cannot be fully described in words, which means that even knowing all this, it is impossible to transfer this knowledge to another in full and without distortions of transmission and perception. At least until we learned direct telepathy.

    No, because there are people around and some of them want and can share a part of you. The part that you want and can pass on to them. Therefore, in his loneliness, a person is not completely alone.

    Carl Jung said: “Loneliness is not caused by the absence of people around you, but by the inability to talk to people about what seems important to you, or the unacceptability of your views for others.” If you can and want to share what is important to you and at the same time there are those who understand you ( so much that this is enough for you), then you are no longer alone. And only you determine how lonely (I don't want to share with someone) or not lonely (I want to be understood and supported) you will be. Hermits move away from people, but even they are not completely alone – they are understood and supported at least in providing them with food and life, by other people.

  3. Different people spend their entire lives – or a significant part of them – so differently that it is pointless to try to squeeze it into a fashionable generalization with a pair of quotation marks.

  4. In some ways, yes, and in some ways no, depending on how you think, because when we are born, we have a family – we are not alone, but when we achieve success, think, decide-then yes, we are alone

  5. A person is alone for as long as the system allows him to do so. It constantly helps a person by setting socially manipulative traps in the form of addictions, stereotypes, quasi-expectations, dogmas and other wonderful things in an attempt to prevent the formalization of thought.

    Previously, in order to be an enlightened person, to have a lively mind with a clear view, it was necessary to be born into an influential family, to be in the right place, or to achieve everything by hard work crossing the mental beginning with overcoming physical pain.

    Now the information that was previously ready to fight for is publicly available in a couple of clicks. But not everything is so simple. People were robbed of humanitarian knowledge by erecting a system of blinders with the suppression of individuality. The reason? It is difficult to manage the people if the people want to participate in management, and even more so, to live on a par with the elite. A person should not think in terms of self-sufficiency, but rather be a hostage of society and work for the benefit of society. Otherwise, the individual falls under the criterion of an antisocial heretic, which must necessarily be anathematized.

    I enclose a separate book – “Childhood and Society” by Eric Erickson
