Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or god.
The above is a quote that I put as a status message on a chat client, and sparked a question from a friend who asked if I was the wild beast or god. It also led to a discussion on why a god would prefer solitude.
According to the creationist theory, everything we see, hear, feel and know has been created by a single omnipresent entity called god. Those who believe in god are not united either. They are divided into several camps, give god their own name and “properties” and try to put down those people that have given god a different name at every opportunity. The one place where all of them are united is in blaming god for all their problems, when they can’t even think through why they have the problems in the first place. So, that answers the question why god prefers solitude. God does not want anything to do with whatever god has created and wants some rest. Seriously.
Now coming to the wild beast. Why would a wild beast prefer solitude? Because it’s a wild beast. A wild beast is to be feared, loathed and shunned by everyone. This, despite anyone not knowing anything about the beast or even trying to understand it’s intentions. Everyone assumes that since it’s a wild beast it is to be shunned. The wild beast now resigns itself to the fate it finds itself in, and prefers solitude and realizes sometimes, there is delight to be found in solitude. Seriously.
