Lone. Alone. Lonely. Loneliness.

It's funny how people think you tend to feel lonely when you're alone. I believe in the opposite. Being alone does not entail loneliness. The loneliest feeling that I get sometimes is when I'm surrounded by loads of people. It's not the physical being, I suppose, that determines loneliness. It is the emotional isolation that really generates one of the worst feelings there is out there.

There is an image that pops up in my mind whenever I think of loneliness. I'm in this brightly lit room (sometimes full of people but really, it doesn't matter) and the camera zooms out and shows a towering building dotted with these bright squares and it continues to zoom out till the dots are reduced to specks and there are endless rows of such buildings and it goes on... You get the idea. Such loneliness is unbearable.

Ever wondered how long you can survive being alone? It's been proven that we are unable to survive alone. Perhaps I should add a specification. The "we" here refers to us socialised beings. The worst form of torture one can ever inflict upon another is to submerge a person in water with the proper inhalation equipment to ensure that he is kept alive. Blindfold him, strap him to inhibit his movements and of course insert feeding tubes into his body (he must be kept alive to be tortured *duh). No physical harm is needed for this torture as his own mind should do the trick. Mental torture is the worst thing you can do to anyone, trust me. His senses will be numbed, in order to eliminate all possible distractions that may interrupt him and his mind. Ingenious.

For the record, I'm not the one who came up with the above -shudders-
