Everyone is actually lonely
Debate Rounds (4)
So no matter what, in the end you're all alone.
In a world of 7 billion, it is extremely unlikely that a person doesn't have friends or company. Or even if they don't have company, they have learned to live life like that and are not sad. It doesn't require you to know a person to socialize. Even a person doesn't know about their different moods and how they come off on the outside. While socializing does improve moods, it is overrated and I would rather go it alone. And I am not sad or lonely when going it alone. There are many others as well.
You can feel without companions or solitary, even when you're surrounded with people because no one gets you. That's a truth a lot of people experienced at some point in their life, and the fact there are millions of persons in the word won't change how you feel. I'm not saying that feeling lonely instantly calls for feeling sad, but you do feel isolated from the rest of the world because your ideas and opinions with everyone else differ so much, and that feeling of isolation is a kind of loneliness.
http://www.jstor.org... . Whether you believe in the Bible or you find evolution a more convincing argument, humans were always social beings, they were created in societies or evolved from social animals.
Further in your argument you deviate again about the feelings produce by loneliness when this argument's core is the fact that everyone is lonely from an "isolation" point of view. And later in your argument you deviate even more from this argument's core talking about transformers for some reason, probably because you spend a lot of time reading transformer's comic.
Lonely as such is a feeling of aloneness. Moreover, you didn't post your definition in the first round, so technically my definition counts. Now that we have internet, no one is isolated. We live in societies, our world is connected. While there are people who have lesser friends, everyone has at least one person they can talk to. I meant by early man that humans took time to form societies yet they survived alone in different parts of the world. 2 billion years ago, there were no tribes or societies or connectivity. Maybe everyone was lonely at that time. But now with internet, new forms of entertainment and other methods of distraction, socialization is easier. And not everyone has their alone time. Think about jobs in which you have to work as a group, like the army, gangsters or software developers. It is unlikely that they would ever not have any friends or acquaintances to talk to. Sometimes despite talking to people you can be lonely, but that is because of sadness due to another reason rather than no contact with humans, Can I use a zombie apocalypse reference here?
For some reason you keep coming back to the fact that "people don't live alone = people is not alone" when I explained you that I was talking about the feeling of loneliness/isolation. As you seem unable to understand what I want to tell you I will give you a clear example of what I mean. Once I talked to an excellent mathematician who told me "you know, sometimes I feel kinda lonely since my subject of study is not know to anyone. There may be only 3 people in the world who know what I know, so everything I know I can't tell it to anyone". Another example is a musician I meet once who told me "sometimes I see myself forced to play very simple songs, because if I were to play a song with the whole complexity I'm capable of, people wouldn't understand my music". These are two examples where this people felt lonely because they were really advanced in a subject (math or music), but I believe that everyone has a certain knowledge of something they can't share with anyone else. I have certain knowledge of physics and mathematics I can't share with my friend, not even with people who is studying with me, since they're not interested on those subjects, so in that sense I'm alone/isolated.
I hope I have made clear what I mean, although it is the last round of this debate.
