What is a friend, and why should there be any reson to have friends ? If I saved some money wouldn't it be bether to buy some food and some equipment to travel to some peak of a mountain or some island where it's absolote nobody else than me, and then to live there ? Wouldn't it be a bether place to apply pure thinking and pure wisdom do get an bether understanding about myself and the universe ? Why should I need friends or other people around me at all ? Wouldn't it be bether to be a real philosopher and to apply the real pure thaught ?
