    So, this is a serious discussion about solitude. I shall give you this, and through this reading, we shall discuss what is solitude? Are we truly alone? Is there life without solitude?
    I opened my eyes, and saw an endless, vast gray sky where no clouds drift the winds nor sound imposes with silent chimes. I saw myself from above, I walked below and yet marching forward, I see only mist yet the sky was ever so clear, and in plain sight, there was no sun yet there was light. I continued to straight until then I felt a gentle wind, touching me. I walk ever so slowly as the wind led me astray from the mist, and to my surprise, I was out of the mist. I felt hope yet within seconds, I turned to despair as I heard a crackling noise. Yes, sound made it towards my ear, and so true for my fears. I face downward and fell unto my knees for the ground was gray, palish white and sand, to my dismay, it was bones, bones, bones, bones across the fields, to the horizon it must go, far, further, away it must go! I ran with violence, I ran with decay, I ran into silence, and found a seat. Yes, a seat made of stone, a seat so lonely without purpose, without goal, without desire nor will, I own to keep. I ran towards the seat, closer, smaller, lessen our gaps, I must! Touching, feeling, the rough yet soft structure of this seat. Tired, extremely tired, the days go without past nor future and present! I must have walked with gentle bells, I might have ran with violent bells? I must had, so I had? Weary is my body, foreboding weakness to my mind, I wanted to sleep, sleep right now, still, forever, silent, I must! I...towards the seat...I will...
    Yeah, you can read above or just do the poll without context.:rolleyes:

    No, there's no such thing as 'alone in solitude'. There's even a famous proverb from a certain artwork;

    « In solitude, where we are least alone »

    That shows how no one ever experiencing solitary solitude.

    yes, we are alone. the good thing is that through the power of

    we're able to delude ourselves into thinking otherwise by being near others we think validate our existence, not caring/distracting away from the issue, or even inventing voices to help ease the loneliness.

    with solitude i mean a situation were even together with other people, you are unable to be you self and were you can only put on a mask.
    Alone, without anyone capable of understanding you, capable of making you feel <alive>

    Humans are social creatures, outliers exists such as people who seek solitude and a separation.

    its impossible to feel that you are alone when there's nobody else besides you, you are just having a distance wether close or far to someone,.

    Thoguh I answer yes for this. But yeah theoretically there's no such thing as solitude. You might hear phrase 'as pass my life goes, I feel like live all alone in this world'. Solitude is impossible as long as you alive. In all kind of events happen in life at least you have a little bit contact and conversation with others people although they won't enter ypur private life. If you born and never have a contact with other humans, you will live like a beast, with instincts and little less intelligence. If you live start with cpntact with humans, and later you cut all of it and live all alone entirely. The result wheter you will gone crazy, suicide or become enlightened (though mostly do suicide before they fone crazy, little less than 1 people become enlightened). Those who noticed themself live in solitude mostly unconsciously 'jealous' of others people who make can make bond with others seemingly so natural while them having hard time with it. Well, some might conscious about it and those which unbothered is the wise one usually. By those who fell alone in life, actually harbor an emotion called 'despair' which you feel like no one understand you and you fell like having no friends and thus disillusioned themselves by a world 'solitude'. Each one and things have a reason to exist, and some didn't notice it. A cognitive word of situation called 'bright' will not exist without situation called 'dark'. As same as 'solitude' and 'crowd'. Each could be known because they have their opposition. Cruel might its reason but they must exist.
