Hikikomori Teodulo Lopez Melendez the Japanese word hikikomori mean isolation. One of every ten young Japanese is suffering from it. They enclose in your home or even in their own bedrooms for long periods, sleep day and night take refuge on television or on the computer. Some say that they live in the imagination. Psychiatrists speak of social disease.

Others refer to the matter as a result of the growth of the Japanese economy in the second half of the 20th century. Those interested in cultural problems come the hikikomori as a consequence of the lies embedded in the historical values of Japanese society that celebrate the solitude. Psychiatrists speak of the role assigned to the mother who must care for these guys until they come into maturity and load again. They are sometimes violent. They are, perhaps, the end of passion for the digital culture and a rejection of extreme life of competition. In any case created a fictitious space, one where to stop time and limited to ends into space. This is what Star Trek was called holoseccion. Psychiatry still doesn’t talk about syndrome, but the truth is that already involves the disappearance of happening everyday of one million young Japanese when writers we isolate to fulfill our task or when older people already consider having seen enough we can seem to us to conduct that was called Diogenes syndrome.

However, this abandonment of the hikikomori in the ennui and boredom comes not from any ailment-related cause physical and apparently none psychic that can be described within the known manuals. Perhaps we could call it a new disease of the century. Moreover, who perfectly embodies the syndrome attributed to Diogenes of Sinepe is the Russian mathematician Grigori Grisha Yakovlevich Perelman, considered the greatest among all the living mathematicians, who solved the famous Poincare conjecture, proposed in 1904 and regarded as one of the most important and difficult in mathematics open problems.
