Probably, the self is just an illusion

We only sense what we are capable of detecting through our nervous system; We seek identity through our memories, but memories are fluid, modified by context and sometimes simply confabulated; And so easily are we molded and shaped by our surroundings, failing to have one solid state and can never be a true self at any given moment in time.

Maybe it's time to let go of all those romantic ideas of living. Our individual self and world are unique to each of us, but they're all grounded in biological mechanisms, shared with many other living creatures. So enjoy the fake realism, the psychedelic cosmos. Undoing Self.
