The _question_ was about humans ability to deal with long term
immersion. You responded with "Look at Easter Island." Your "isolated

Why don't you go ask a geologist? Or better yet, learn some
geology? It may come as a shock to you, but experts in the field
usually _do_ know what they're talking about.
