Some days I get to thinking I'm wrong, and everyone else is just like me. It happens in two situations; either I'm spending the day completely in gifted company (real, virtual, or authorial), or everyone I meet feels isolated, disenfranchised, and weird.

What is this crazy drive to fit in? It must have roots in survival - whenever one is helpless (infancy, illness, inebriation for example) the social group is the safety net. We don't want to stick out, because that might mean we're intruders. How can we expand the definition of society? Is it biological destiny, which must be educated out of every one of us?
