We're programmed to think we are part of a community, that we have friends, family, or that anybody actually cares about us. In reality, we're alone & terrified of acknowledging our lack of value to others, who are in exactly the same situation. We take up space, we consume, & we cycle through consumables & services to keep an economy ticking over: like intestinal bacteria to the host organism. That's all we are. In the end, the only thing that matters is how we have experienced our lives.
