A revelation at work
    #1749780 - 07/26/03 01:16 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

For me, I had always wondered why I think I am me. It is hard to explain what I am trying to say, but it's like, why does whatever spiritual matter that composes me reside in my body and think that it is Ryan, why do "I" think that "I" amd "me." Why doesn't "someone else" think that they are "me."

But then at work today I realized that everything I am as a PERSON, like my PERSONALITY, is made up completely of my thoughts and memories. I suddenly realized that I am part of one consciousness that pinches itself off like an ameoba and then resides in a physical body. I have an ego that tells me I am seperate from this, and then everything else that composes me is from life experiences.

When this came to me, I stopped dead in my tracks. Talk about a revelation!!!

Sounds more like the realization that a human consciousness is like a raindrop that is temporarily separated from the ocean.

I think it's a useful metaphorical picture, but of course it's a simplification. Perhaps there is no ocean yet, just water vapor and raindrops... :ooo:
