“I have been emboldened to write of it because I notice a man seldom mentions what he had supposed to be his most idiosyncratic sensations without receiving from at least one (often more) of those present the reply, “What! Have you felt that too? I always thought I was the only one.”
– C.S. Lewis, Preface, Surprised by Joy
I think we are unique not because of one singular feature that sets us apart from the other close to 8 billion of the population, but the different combinations of experiences we each gather. Therefore, no one can truly fully understand another yet no one stands alone.
