146. Le ciel c'est l'autre

2 0 0

Everybody is an alien to somebody else. The other can be heaven or can be hell. Still and all, the other remains an opportunity to discover ourselves.

People die from lack of shared empathy and affinity. Albert Camus' foreigner is an alien in society, erring as an isolated individual along the strata of a lonesome life. He hasn't got the opportunity to know the ins and outs of finding somebody who would bring him heaven and make him discover the juicy fruits of life. He will be condemned to death for that shortage and his lack of human feelings in the first place.

Jean-Paul Sartre's foreigner doesn't make any chance to find a person who brings him heaven, since "the other is hell."

By establishing social connectedness, we give hope a chance, and the other can become heaven.

Emotion often outwits intelligence, while intuition renders life surprisingly fluent and enjoyable.
