person without and within myself:
as individuals we sense and can think about what is immediately around us, but not beyond ourselves. other people exist but they see and hear things we do not, because we are localized, what happens elsewhere we are less aware of.
what is the other person? someone like yourself, a variation of a person, with the senses you have and an independent capacity to think. we are all linked together in a network with busy traffic, and over many years, we have come to learn about and understand others.
if we are in any sense alone, however, it is that which makes us the individual, indeed a person with something to offer to the other person.
