WHAT IF WE REALLY ARE ALONE?

Human history is rife with stories of nonhuman personalities. Ghosts, demons, gods, magical animals, space aliens and even rocks with their own personalities exist and play our imaginations. In addition, we too seek to attribute nonhuman traits in ourselves. From ancient shamans to modern otherkin, humans struggle to find or create any beings that are not, well, us. It may be accurate to say that this itself is part of human nature. Getting in touch with our bestial sides, or finding explanations for the phenomena in the world seem to be the most common explanations.

 

…or are we simply afraid of being alone?

 

The stories and comics here are meant to represent the theme of other inside and outside of ourselves. To hold a mirror on ourselves, and to reflect on our deep and everlasting loneliness on this little watery mote spinning in the long deep dark…
