the myth of the individual continued...

okay, so you know what else? the language that you use, that is inherent to your knowledge of yourself, your world, all things, meaningful, is NOT yours. It does not belong to you, it is on loan from the culture(s) that you are embedded in. It does not go with you into the great beyond when your body stops breathing. it remains with the culture, as it should as it does belong to "them" to "us," but not to "me."

in fact, if there were no "them," there would be no "me." we need "them" to become "us," to become "me's

in short, it ain't about me (since me can only be known in relation to them, and has no inherent existnece), it is about us.
