on hell. on nothing.

Jean-Paul Sartre said that hell is other people.  Perhaps if I got to know him better I might agree.
Think of hell as complete and utter disharmony from other persons—viz., complete and utter loneliness.  Think of yourself as nothing without someone else. It follows from these two thoughts that no one is in hell, nor could there be.
