loneliness, however, does not just envelop the individual but also the culture through shared experience that is so deeply rooted that the pain of ancestors somehow shows itself upon the faces of its descendants. often this pain is embedded in the psche of these people in such a way it isolates them from their own path to wordly beauty and self-determination. the success of a culture seems to come from its willingness to to change, not to bow down to, but accepting of outside influences that enhance their own culture and ultimately lead them on the path survival, beauty, and to the greatest extent possible, be part of many and comfortably lonely
