Default Re: Funny Ways to Comfort Myself

Hume wrote that the idea of the self is an illusion- that we are merely a bundle of perceptions. All the cells in our body have a limited life span and are gradually being replaced (okay, neurons are an exception). So perhaps in a very real way we really aren't the same person we were 10 years ago- and maybe it's time to forgive whoever it was that was who was in charge of the person with our name...
