Humans can only confess to Something rather than Somebody

I emphasize the relationship and emotional connections between humans and objects when suffering from the deepest and painful emotions.

We cannot tell others when we suffer from the deepest pain, however it is the time we need help. We can only face this kind of horrible emotions alone. I speculated a scenario that the objects around us have “black boxes”(kind of data recorders) inside them, which will be influenced, distorted by the emotions and behavior by their owners. In the end, we can only find somethings to be the commitment to our spirit, and confess to them, no matter what they are. We can only know others by watching these objects. We are still alone. Humans are still lonely. The loneliness is the nature of human, it’s unchangeable and unsolvable.
