Loneliness transcends nearly any identifiers which typically divide the human population. Play, usually regarded as an act only acceptable for children to partake in, produces endorphins in the brain, which in turn, gives the party participating in the action a temporary feeling of happiness. Additionally, if a party of individuals collectively experience activities that encourage the participation of all members, interpersonal relationships may start to germinate.

Taking advantage of this information, one can suppose that if three strangers were to embark on a journey—a multi-sensory journey—in which the challenges, or playful elements, were not made aware of before the start of said journey, the feeling of loneliness may temporarily be satiated by their play and may be permanently satiated by the relationships developed through the timeline of their plight of recreation.
