Fundamentally Social and Inherently Alone II

Does fundamental rely on inherent then? Biologically speaking, humans are not alone. We are made from another and are related by blood to others of our species. By this definition individuals are not entirely distinct. However, in the sense that one makes his own decisions when a certain physical maturity is reached, we are consciously alone. We act in accordance to other individuals and to outside cues, but decisions are ours. We are in this sense, alone. So we seek out others. We seek out the social cues and connections that make us feel as though we are not alone, and seek them out so we have some basis to act in accordance to—the human thus becomes fundamentally social.
