This might be an easy way to approach it.

Engulfment is merging on involuntary and disadvantageous terms. Romantic love is (maybe) a similar thing on better terms.

With engulfment there is the feeling of having lost some freedom of action. It may be a blurring of boundaries (whatever they are).

I came to the conclusion with myself that engulfment was a subconcious attempt to solve my cosmic loneliness on almost any terms.

It is said with counterintutive plausiblity, that engulfment is active not passive.

Time for a cup of tea and a think.
