Great piece, Kristofer Mac Cormaic.

Thanks for your reply. That is very hard question to give a definite answer to, I find that humans nature often contradicts itself for example, most writers will agree that writing is a very personal journey. I don’t think there are many among us that would like to have someone over our shoulder while we are working on whatever it is we are working on and yet we share it on Medium, we seek validation from the public for something that we don’t like people watching us do. Its strange to me that something that process be in private but the finished product be shared.

So on reflection my answer is yes, We seem to enjoy our own space but at the same time are constantly craving the need for stimulation that human contact provides

I don’t know if this example is helpful in answering your question so I will refer you to something that I think you might find helpful. I don’t know if you ever heard of the youtuber Vsauce? He recently did a video where he put himself in isolation for three days to see the effects it had on his mind. I would recommend you check it out.

I have to say that I really enjoyed your interpretation of the poem, its a completely different angle to one I took when I wrote it.
