Lets change it a bit...how about no human contact..but I can have the internet...I find I feel more socialized through online chatting than actual human contact these days...so im pretty sure I could...im actually a highly social guy...but im very solitary too...my best times are when im alone...and most contact I have is through the internet.
Having lived alone in the forest for two years I would say its definitely not for everyone.
The danger of that solitude, of "listening to the voices of the outer world" is the same as the danger with any mind-altering stimulus: it brings out what is already latent within you.
My problem was a 100 year ice storm had coated everything in ice and it was so dangerous just to walk 10 feet. I guess what your saying is it's somewhat normal to replace conversation with your own personal 'input' and that input can bring out fears that were just below the surface.
I'm wondering if that is within the context of what you are saying?
I had good shelter. Still I have never understood why I had such debilitating visions about the caves-I was never scared of them before.
If you want to elaborate more on this I would be interested in reading it-I have never understood my mental breakdown however it was short lived because the pressures of staying alive drove me much more than my lack of sleep and horrible visions.
