My post today is less an exposition, and more a research project. I'm curious to know to what extent extreme solitude would have on your life:
Are you comfortable alone with your thoughts, a little uneasy, or severely distressed?
Do you consider yourself to be a highly social person? If so, would it be a minor inconvenience if that were no longer possible, or would it be distressing enough to cause a crisis of personal identity?
Do you believe there to be any longterm physical problems from limited social interaction? If so, what are they?
Same as above, but psychological. If you believe it causes problems, what are they?
