Life as a Lie Detector

     In movies we've seen lie-detector tests, where a person is asked a series of questions, from name & address (to establish a baseline), to potentially intimidating ones eg possible criminal activity. A polygraph records the respondent's physiological reactions which estimate the truth or falsehood of the answers.
     Isn't life in many ways one continuous lie-detector test? From moment-to-moment, how true are we to ourselves? As we stumble along, & keep "getting it wrong", it slowly dawns on us that we're not at all who or what we thought we were. So who are we? What exactly is this?
