I don't beleive QTI implies this at all. It does imply that your
experienced reality will get rather weird, as strange coincidences
will start happening to keep you alive. It also implies that friends
will be temporary, as you will see them all die off eventually - but
many people change lifestyle, locations etc, and make new friends, so
there is no reason to expect be lonely unless you choose it.
