    nothingness/stripped

    http://spacecollective.org/wildcat/3391/Nothingness-Rules

    After everything is stripped from you-clothes, house, belonging, family, friends, acquaintances- what is left of you as a person?

    What does it mean to be a social being and to be part of a good community-a bad community?

    What does it mean to be an individual?

    I want to research the result of what happens when people are stripped of various things in life and try to recognize some sort of pattern.

    STRIPPED OF:
    -community(family, friends, acquaintances)
    -belongings

    Being put into:
    -solitary confinement
    -a place with many people
    -different social environments (church, school, home)

    "what is the experience of social beings"
    -what are the different experiences by these individuals in these different environments?
    -how does the social environments of individuals define who they are and what kind of person they are?

    When people are stripped from support systems, it leads to lonliness and because they have nothing to turn to and feel a void in themselves, do they turn to religion and spirituality to fill that void?
    -"replacing society with ideology"
