In modern Western culture independence and individualism are highly praised. “Decide for yourself, don’t rely on other opinions, think independently”. However, in that case our education, science, art lose their meaning completely. Books, paintings, discoveries are a sort of a silent call for interaction. For discussion. The creator’s search for the kindred mind.
For all our lives we put our experience and knowledge on the shoulders of titans that come before us. Like in the famous quote: “no man is an island”. We strive for close relationships, our souls cry to be heard and understood. Only in closeness and sincerity true love and freedom are born.
