It's not a coincidence that the philosophers, the wise men, the thinkers throughout history and the enlightened spiritual masters have been
practically hermits and shunned the social circles.
Social circles are nothing but ape-talk, gossip, materialism, greed, selfishness, expectations and keeping-you-in-line so you would act exactly like
all brainwashed corporate drones do. Why would you even WANT to be part of that?
The word 'society', btw, does not mean what people usually think it means .. (even that is part of the indoctrination)
When you can think for yourself, you need to be alone a lot. Social circles do not like individualists or hermits, so anyone who is even a little bit
interested in the spiritual things or right values, is gradually being shunned into becoming a hermit. It's pretty much inevitable - if you want to
follow your spirit, you do it alone.
If you want to follow the bottomless stupidity of the ape-masses, you can be social. Ape-masses are very interested in your physical body, even if you
would rather talk about grander ideas, the design of the Universe and all that.
Very rarely there can be any exceptions to this rule on THIS planet.
But that's why we have the internet.. you can be social AND a hermit at the same time! Best of both worlds.
