      Last Person on Earth

      You wake up to find that everyone has vanished. You are the last person on Earth.

      What would you do? Where would you go? How would you get there?

      What purpose would there be in doing anything?

      None whatsoever. At least that's what I think.

      If I was the last person on Earth...

      ... I would find a car that is unlocked with the keys in it. I'd drive to a gas station and fill up on gas and supply myself with food.

      Then I would drive. Recklessly.

      I'd drive to New York. I don't know the way, but what's the rush? There's no schedules, no plans or commitments, there's nothing. Then I would find a lavish and expensive place there to spend the night in. The next morning I would finish off the rest of my gas station supplies.

      I would have to go get more food then, if I planned on surviving. I would get boxed snacks like Cheez-its for the time being. Then I would just walk around New York. Thinking to myself. Not very hard, and not very much about anything in particular. I would let my mind wander until I'd realize that there isn't much purpose left for me on the planet.

      I'd then sit down.

      And wait...

      For anything to happen.

      I would spend several years doing this, moving from place to place, emptying grocery marts and the like, moving like a restless nomad. I'd walk and think and sit.

      Then, I would have an idea.

      I would hop in a car, preferably a fast one, and drive away from New York. I'd drive and drive until the car ran out of gas. Then I would walk until my legs gave out.

      And as I would be lying there, be it in dirt, grass, gravel, sand, shallow water, I would look up at the sky.

      And then I would die.

      But I wouldn't die of old age, or cancer, or pneumonia.

      I would die of loneliness...

      What would you do?

      Thumbs up

      Although, I am a solitary creature by nature, this post has been extrodinarily insightful and seems very real. When I was reading the words, it was like it was actually happening. And I could very well imagine myself dying from lonliness if it were to happen. In retrospect however it seems I would be impervious to such negative effects.

      I'd wander through other people's houses looking at how they lived their lives. I'd probably read a lot and practice lucid dreaming a lot.

      My days would be similar to poogs, only with more substance abuse, which in turn would lead to my death.

      What would you feel then, if not lonely? Happy? Free?

      That sounds good. You could try lucid dreaming of other people.

      I don't think any of you, except perhaps poog, truly understand the magnitude of the loneliness, and how fast it will set in. It wouldn't take years, it would take weeks for depression and madness to set in. Maybe days, depending on how well you grasp the situation.

      I honestly think that most people, or at least most psychologically healthy people, would kill themselves from depression within a few weeks, myself included.

      I would spend years building a machine that would make me sleep and dream forever and ever.

      Considering everyone I love just basically DIED, I'd probably kill myself, as nothing I could do would really be any fun anymore... Not even shooting guns at skyscrapers, which would be awesome. But yeah.. Everyone would be gone. No thanks =\

      find oil (unless near the equator) for heating source. Find guns/food and hunt for food, clean water, and then make a good fort and pig out on great things people left for me.

      and build a music studio and jam out/do art and pursue the hobbies I have always wanted. Read books which would help me figure out the things I want to do. Hopefully their are animals around I can eat and kill and possibly even have sex with (you never know until you are that lonely).

      Wouldn't the food go very bad very soon without people to fill the grocery stores again?



      Anyways... I'd probably try to hold out as long as I could... But I fear depression, mania, and suicide would follow shortly...


      Darn.

      No but seriously. I don't know what I'd do. In essence, even the most solitary humans need each other to survive. Our lives revolve around each other and we evolve together. It's one of the things that make us human, that's how we got from sticks and stones to cars and everyday jobs. Being alone would devoid you of basic natural needs or instincts like reproduction and you'd lose a purpose in life you're given by society, unless you're some shaman or zen monk.
      Most likely I'd do something like the OP suggested and look for other people. I'd also probably get a dog...

      ...or maybe I'd make a Wilson to talk to.

      Non-perishables won't go bad within your lifetime.

      I am a very social person. I like to be around people, I don't like being by myself. That being said I would kill myself. I would only last a couple of days, & that time would be spent just wondering around. I'd prob explore people's houses, & read a lot.
      Why canít life be like in the fairy tales? Itís always happily ever after, and entirely black and white. There are no unresolved characters because, in the end, the bad guy is defeated and the hero and heroine live happily ever after.

      Oh wait...

      If we have the technology, you could probably take some years and learn how to reproduce things or something and attempt to re-populate the world by yourself...

      Modern research takes integrated teams of hundreds or thousands of people and years to produce something tangible. A single person would not be able to re-invent an implement of the early 20th century in a lifetime, let alone the advanced technology needed to bring back people.

      I just finished reading The War of the Worlds.

      The narrator found himself in a situation not completely similar to this one.

      How come you don't like being by yourself? I love being by myself, no one to distract me from anything.

      If i were the last person on earth i would live it up. I'd probably do lots of shrooms.

      I am the last person on Earth. The only thing that keeps me sane is my internet time machine. It means my internet is set back by 5 years, and so I can talk to people back when they still existed.

      Damnut I'm lonely.
