You are very wise Alder Logs.
I've had a revelation I can't seem to logically disprove. Why do we feel so lonely? Why do we (most people anyone) want to connect with the world around us, whether that be humans, animals, nature, etc? Why do we always seem to crave more?
I think the problem stems us constructing ourselves as separate from the rest of the universe. I'm me, you are you, she is she, etc. I've realized that the self truly is an illusion. After the big bang, hydrogen was blasted into the universe. It began to get closer and closer until BAM- the first stars are born. As the supergiant stars run out of hydrogen, it begins fusion to create helium, then carbon, oxygen, silicon, and sulfur, until finally it makes iron. This triggers its death. As it collapses in on itself, all the other elements in the periodic table are formed and a supernova occurs, blasting all the elemented into the universe. This cycle continues, nebula clouds, planets, moons, comets, asteroids all form. Like Carl Sagan, we are all stardust.
I believe all we are as humans is the living universe with the ability to contemplate its existence. We are not truly separate from anything in the universe, whether it be another living creature on Earth, plants, rocks, or our own sun. We are all connected. We are all one. We will never truly be happy or evolve as a species until we accept this in my opinion.
