Who am I?

     “We have many different perceptions of self. Each sense of self is strategic, a means to an end. Each comes with a boundary, inside of which is ‘self’ and outside of which is ‘not-self.’ And so our sense of what’s self and what’s not-self keeps changing all of the time depending on our desires and what we see will lead to true happiness.”
