Accorded to existentialist theory and bridge theorist Erich Fromm, we all have to deal with the cold hard fact that we are alone, isolated. In a great big world of incredible forces we are essentially alone. It may come as a surprise but I wholeheartedly agree with this idea. In the greater reality their are indeed blessed angels and demonic jinn's who have accompanied us throughout life. And, of course, their is all mighty Allah. But that does not change the fact that we are alone. Alone in our experience of reality. God is with us in every moment of our lives he knows how we experience, what we experience, when we experience, who we are and why we are what we are. But our experience is not that of God's. We actually don't always knows why something is happening and we experience every reality in our own uniquely distorted way. In the rare moments when we feel like someone truly gets us we want to leap for joy -why? Because every moment of our experience is lived in isolation we are amazed when someone can seep in to that unknown unique territory and see the world through own eyes. But these moments are fleeting, rare and very often superficial. Nothing seems to point more to that isolated feeling then the one who constantly says "You know what I mean". The honest answer is, more often then not, "No".
