The call of solitude alonetime in a world of attachment - Call to Solitude, Hermit Nun - YouTube



As the world spins faster and faster—or maybe it just seems that way when an email can travel around the world in fractions of a second—we mortals need a variety of ways to cope with the resulting pressures. We need to maintain some semblance of balance and some sense that we are steering the ship of our life.

Otherwise we feel overloaded, overreact to minor annoyances and feel like we can never catch up. As far as I'm concerned, one of the best ways is by seeking, and enjoying, solitude.

That said, there is an important distinction to be established right off the bat. There is a world of difference between solitude and loneliness , though the two terms are often used interchangeably.

»Only when we believe that nobody else is watching us do we feel free – safe – to truly experiment, to test boundaries, to explore new ways of thinking and being, to explore what it means to be ourselves. What made the Internet so appealing was precisely that it afforded the ability to speak and act anonymously, which is so vital to individual exploration.« Glenn Greenwald, No Place to Hide , 2015, p. 174

In the last few years, the debate around whistleblowing and leaking has demonstrated the importance of enhancing technologies for social and political change that come from within closed, institutionalized systems. In a political framework that has been defined as ›post-truth‹, a paradoxically growing number of ›truth-tellers‹ have demonstrated that it is possible to denounce governmental and corporative misconduct, misinformation, and wrongdoing by revealing facts and, thus, producing awareness about social, political, and technological matters.

We are witnessing an increasing political engagement of technologically skilled truth-tellers able to focus on sensitive subjects bypassing barriers of inaccessible, hidden and sensitive information. Truth-tellers such as Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Jeremy Hammond, just to name a few, have exposed complex networks of powers, as well as demonstrated that a big power can be undermined by a single individual that takes the risk – unfortunately at a high personal cost.

Solitude is a state of seclusion or isolation, i.e., lack of contact with people. It may stem from bad relationships, loss of loved ones, deliberate choice, infectious disease , mental disorders , neurological disorders or circumstances of employment or situation (see castaway ).

Short-term solitude is often valued as a time when one may work, think or rest without being disturbed. It may be desired for the sake of privacy .

A distinction has been made between solitude and loneliness . In this sense, these two words refer, respectively, to the joy and the pain of being alone. [1] [2] [3] [4]
