Symbiosis, in general, is a type relationship between living beings and this only occurs when all living beings participate to relationship benefit. Feeling of Symbiosis exits in most of our humanitarian emotions. This feeling stands in opposite of idea that ‘’life is a struggle’’. Symbiotic tendency in life rules refuses the idea of generalizing the small things and overrate them under the name of ‘’life struggle’’. Modernity squeezes the societies between the notions by enforcing its rules and and societies are standardized by these rules. However, human the social being, refuses the emotions that system creates and needs to face the inner emotions of own. But these people are marginalised and evoked lonely by society. For entire mankind, rather than hitting the cyber targets that system creates, turning to natural and social life will only be available by understanding that different aspects and feelings from their inner world can combine and live together. The pioneers of this transformation and the symbiotic confrontations in their inner world invite you to face the feelings in your inner world. The people getting lonely and reproduce by facing their loneliness.
