2023-04-26 It's become a somber kind of a day

Nothing has ever rang more true to me than Sartre's "hell is other people".

I don't see how it could be otherwise. Imagine utterly separate be-ings modeling an alleged objective reality in their own utterly separate ways - i.e. in accord with their distinct experiences/biases/learnings - and said alleged objective reality with communication delays, slightly different meanings for the same word symbols, misspeaks, attempts to backup going awry, blah-die-fucking-blah-blah.

Perhaps it would be better (in terms of locating the problem more locally) to say "hell is seemingly being a separate individual/self".

Once such a separate selfhood/individuality is presumed, the rest of the nightmare simply follows.

Life is but a nightmare said to be a dream in order to avoid immediate craving to "off".
