I've often fantasized about doing this, usually on days when I am so sick of people all I can think about is being alone for miles with no living soul around. Not sure how long I would last being happy like that, but I sure do have that feeling a lot. But it only comes when I have moments of disgust and irritation with my fellow human beings. But there are also a lot of moments where I intensely long for a deep connection with someone,and over the internet isn't enough
My favorite tv show is Lost, and I often wonder how cool it would be to be thrown onto a deserted island with a big group of other people and be forced to create a new life there with them. You wonder if it would eventually turn into the way modern society is anyway, i mean if we all started out that way, we eventually evolved into this crazy existence, so maybe that would happen on this island too.
I want to check out those movies suggested up there. I'm very curious what would happen if someone were to live completely alone for an extended period of time. They would have to go insane though, or at the very least draw faces on stuff and start talking to them
I think the solution is moderation, the perfect life would be for everyone to have their own plot of land acres wide so they had solitude and privacy every day and then everyone could easily get to a well populated area whenever they get lonely. That's what I really want. But I agree with whoever said people look at you like you're crazy when you talk about wanting to be far away from everyone. I guess those are the people who are so "addicted" to having others around that they just think it's wrong to not need others as much as they do.
I dont really know where I'm going with this, just stating my thoughts!
