We live together, we act on, and react to, one another;  but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.  The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena;  they are crucified alone.  Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence;  in vain.  By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude.  Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies – all these are private and, at second hand, incommunicable.  We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves.
