When you’re alone.
Last week, I was able to enjoy a few days away with only my computer equipment as company. In fact, I was alone for a relatively short period of time. First and foremost, I believe that loneliness is also relative. You have to differentiate between being alone and feeling alone. These are two completely different things, although the first can lead to the second, but the reverse is quite rare.
The feeling of loneliness comes from within. It appears when we can’t find an answer to our own need for existence. We mightn’t feel alone even if we are in fact alone in life. Of course, I can’t go further than artificial loneliness because true loneliness would instead come to reach that of The Little Prince by Saint-Exupéry. To exist without having the knowledge that others also share this reality. Today, it is necessary to create this situation. Loneliness is therefore artificial because even if you go on an expedition to Mars, you will know that others exist. So even if we isolate ourselves for a few days, far from our loved ones, we can still feel alone.
