Who Are We?

November 26, 2008

Will the real Mr Brown please stand up?

Back in the sixties there was a game show where contestants would ask questions of three individuals.  Two of them were pretenders and one was the real person, the contestant would decide whom they thought was telling the truth.  Actually, I believe the name of the show was “To Tell the Truth”

Who are we anyway?  Are we the things that we do?  The things that we say?  Are we the physical blob of matter that exists in this world?  Are we a spirit, contained within that physical blob?  Are we the things that we write?  Are we the person that we are at work? at school? in public? with friends? with family? when we are alone?

Who knows the real me?  Do even I know?

Who are we anyway?

Who knows?

God knows.
