"I have always thought that this organismic me, now one of 7 billion or so of the type, is a vessel built for a sol;o voyage. Artists and poets share that intuition. As Orson Wells said, we are born alone, we live alone, and we die alone. He went on to say that love and friendship can still make life worthwhile - which is true. But the premise, it turns out, is entirely wrong. Science, quietly at first but with increasing insistence over the last decade or so, begs to differ. You, like me, are an individual human. But we've all got company. Lots of company."
