Posted:     Post subject: My Friends & Me

My closest friends see things in much the same way as I do... not necessarily on specific ideas and details, but in what we find personally important about Life and the Universe.

And yet, that kind of similarity is both rare and fragile.
There are few people with whom I can connect in Life in this way. I feel lucky if I can find half a dozen good Friends with whom I have a deep connection.

But perhaps others find it easier to connect !?

Aristotle, who was also an ugly piece of rock and didn't have any friends, frazzled some grey-matter on the subject of Friendship, proposing that “a friend is another self.
That your "true soulmate" is actually yourself. That a best friend is a “mirror who “reflects your Soul back to you.

I find that this idea, resurrected in recent times by the likes of the Objectivist psychologist Nathaniel Branden, contains a grain of truth; but can also be somewhat misleading.

Live your life until Life is found !

`human connection is defined largely by the position of two individuals on the spirtual plane. A tricky concept that will be described in the time to come.
