I'm in John's camp on this one also.

I see Isolation / loneliness is an absolute logically necessary truth.  
Any sufficiently intelligent being must recognize this and become 'sad' 
in some way if there is any kind of isolation, and hope to, or work to 
eliminate such evil that is isolation with faith that such should and 
can be eliminated for all.
