What I want to ask is two points.

❶ the meaning of "no self there to meet," especially the exact meaning of "self "

❷ The structure of the sentences.

What had he been afraid of?
I asked myself.
That, suddenly alone, he would discover that he bored himself, or that there was, quite simply, no self there to meet?


▸Here's what I think of ❷.

He had he been afraid that suddenly alone, he would discover that he bored himself, or that there was, quite simply, no self there to meet.

Am I right?

To crib the definition from my dictionary, "self" means "the distinct individuality or identity of a person". So, "no self there to meet" means a personality or identity lacking in substance or interest.

Am I right?
