When we say we are a person
what we are actually meaning is a combination
of an energetic contraction and unexamined ideas.
A person makes it sound like something solid
and independent, separate.
While if we look closely
it is an ever shifting amalgam of memories,
habits, reaction, convictions, wishes,
Which are mostly not questioned,
but which change whenever we do.
And this is connected to a body which
is also changing shape ever since it
made its appearance.
It is all those believed ideas which
keeps the energetic contraction into place.
