Marcel Proust's Irremediable solitude: (Beckett)

Sam Beckett quote “Friendship, according to Proust, is the negation of that irremediable solitude to which every human being is condemned.”

The FERMI Paradox "Where is everybody in the Universe'' ?

The Concept of FERMI's Paradox is that despite the huge odds for extra-terrestrial Life beyond Earth - we have located nothing. On Earth we develop strong attachment and sense of Place to Earth and Habitat - to 'HOME"
People and Place. I discuss this visually and in Text - but as Poetics and speculation not seeking empirical science.
