Thank you everyone who participated in class today. Thank you also to all of you playing at home, following Theory of LTC in your own time. Huge shoutout especially to Julie, for participating online and commenting on last week’s question!

This week’s focus question is:

What constitutes the self? What makes you, you?

Please leave a comment below with your answer. Don’t be afraid to respond to other people’s answers in your own.

Remember the two rules: Use your initials instead of your real name and enjoy the ride!

Here are a couple of quotes, one from someone we’ve looked at in class and one from someone we’ll look at soon to get you started.

We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us.

John Locke

… yet something, or an infonite number of things, die in each death- unless there is a universal memory, as the theosophists have conjectured. There was a day in time when the last eyes to see Christ were closed forever. The battle of Junin and the love of Helen died with the death of some one man. What will die with me when I die? What pathetic or frail form will the world lose?

– Jorge Luis Borges
