wow that IS pretty lame
i could forgive u if you at least lie and say you where born there or something

physically alone i say yes to since there are monks, and hermits right? they'd be content no matter what the situation.

but if nothing is your friend., not even the garments that you are wearing then i don't think so

I agree, with the lameness (too much caffeine would be my excuse) and your points.

It depends on what you mean by living alone, if you mean just living in a house by yourself in the middle of the countryside but with internet access and a mobile to talk to people then that would be easy for me because I'm 'quite' the sort of 'antisocial' person, I'd rather stay at home than go out; but then again that's mostly because I'm lazy.
However if you mean living on like pluto with nothing at all, just waking up with nothing to do each day then it would be really boring and may even cause a person to commit suicide.

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson says no, but I think anyone can. Human beings can be incredibly adaptable, even when they think they can't do it.

Heres my Irony. I like to spend quality time alone with myself but If I had to be alone forever I dont think my mind could take it.

not one of us who has a computer posting right now can live alone. the fact that you have some sort of culture means you have been brought up in society. to take everything away, you'd literally go insane. or be emo. then listen to ohio is for lovers. mmhmm.

A vague memory of tests on monkeys comes to mind. They have done tests with baby monkeys where the tested with actual parents, then fake parents(mesh furry monkey looking thing). And then with nothing. And if i recall correctly, the monkeys with nothing were @#%^3 up. But, the fake substitute worked more or less well. Just going by vague memory though so ill look for an article.

Human interaction is like maintenance for us in a way it seems.

I'd like to think I can, but I'd prob crack like the most people I suppose without some type of interaction.



I recognize the experiment of which you speak. In tests conducted at the Univ. of Wisconsin Primate Lab, professors Harry and Margaret Harlow found that monkeys raised in cages and physically isolated--even though they could see/hear/smell their simian brethren--developed a range of morose, withdraw, self-destructive, and otherwise abnormal characteristics. To put it in terms which my fellow anime junkies can understand: They all turned into little primate Gaara's. In ACTUAL humans, this is most often observed in children who have grown up in institutions--socially isolated and without physical affection (again, like Gaara).

Its probably NO, a big NO
I guess u remember this one that GOd created Adan and Eve to make this world a happy one but I saw some people that they deserve to be alone..I mean they love to be alone sharing thoughts on their own, and that's a big crap for me...Maybe they live in not a good situation on there childhood days -- SORTA
