      Even a cursory examination of the topic "consciousness" refutes such a statement.

      No matter how independent you fancy yourself, your private study is already rife with presuppositions and cultural conditioning, even if you disavow science, philosophy, and religion.

      "...what is inaccessible to consciousness is the impact of the subject's act itself, its own inscription into objectivity...thought is immanent to reality and changes it, but not as fully self-transparent self-consciousness, not as an Act aware of itself." (Zizek)

      Even if one is convinced of solitary conclusions, these remain particular, not universal. That is, unless you subscribe to the notion that what's universal is also particular. It appears you do not. You want to teach but have no respect for what others can teach you.

      When you seclude yourself because nobody else could possibly know, you've already tainted the research. The act of advising others to be solitary is not a solitary act. Wake up!
