  1. I remember taking 25 days to camp alone. (In reality I drove home every 4 days or so to pick up food, but most of it was solitude.) The only lesson I learned was that my brain did the same old talking-in-multiple-voices-and-thinking-about-people that it always did, but for days at a stretch instead of minutes. I just extended the time of daydreaming, and most of it involved imagining social interaction. I found days of solitude no more spiritually productive than a few minutes of solitude in my busy life. I guess it requires a kind of focused discipline that mediators cultivate, but I just didn’t have the knack.
