"Kein Schwein ruft mich an" Erik Pevernagie , oil on canvas(60 x 94 cm)

When the river of emotions bursts its banks and expectations go over the edges of reality, the brain creates hallucinations. Ringxiety-stricken people feel illusive vibrating alerts and hear phantom phone rings, since absence of ringing generates scaring emptiness and destroys their self-esteem.

Some seem to be desynchronized in their relationships. They feel oppressed as they cannot move forward together and at the same pace. Their thinking is often incongruent, their motivation disparate.

The phone could be a mediator, since it creates an impression to be a perfect reliable friend. However, in the end, it causes a sense of loneliness, since it divides more than it unites. Eventually it appears to be not such a good friend but a ghost friend.

In spite of the development of all kinds of networks, the acute loss of communication and isolation strike hard. Nobody seems to care, in the end. Not even a "Schwein".

For Carl Jung “Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views others find inadmissible.”

Rainer Maria Rilke would advise to make something positive out of loneliness and convert the pain into creativity : "Love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you."

Phenomenon : contact, isolation, telecommunication

Factual starting point : woman with telephone
