There is no solitude in a global, integrated world

Question from the Internet:

“Is it possible to live one’s life in solitude in the modern world, which seems to continually demand a response and high level of proactiveness from people?”

We can’t live life in solitude, we are all integral parts of a single human “super-organism" like cells in a body.

It is true that this is against our original, completely self-centered, subjective, individualistic nature, and against our belief in individual freedom, free choice.

Nevertheless we are obligated by Nature’s laws of integration and as the increasing problems of our global, integral world show, we either learn and implement how to live in positive, globally integrated, mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, or we will not survive.

While at first it might sound as a terrible predicament, bring enslaved to others, in truth through a nature-like mutual integration we can elevate ourselves a qualitatively much higher, collective human existence, beyond the inherently egocentric, subjective limitations of time, space and physical motion.
