Re: Do you know who you are?
The trouble isn't finding out who you are, the trouble is finding some basic, solid, core that you can lean on. A foundation that grounds all your other perceptions and allows you to act as a single entity in a world of other individual entities. I'm not so much concerned about who I am, but I am concerned about finding this foundation or this core from which I can act. I realize the self may be a fiction, but without this necessary fiction I feel like a mass of fragments, perceptions, and ideas that don't quite fit together. On the whole it just leads to feelings of emptiness, disorientation, and fear.
