Just wondering, what it will be like if I:me:myself someone totally lost his memory (I have utkarsh in my mind, and thus the ‘his’). Will he be the same person as before or a new person altogether ?

The fundamental question being, are we defined by our past experiences, or by our moment-to-moment existence. Is it that we use our past experiences to filter and interpret our current existence, and thus are defined by our past? Or, is it that we constantly re-evaluate our view of the past based on our current experiences, thus making it a two-way street.

As tempted as I am to move into the discussion of no-absolute-reality-individual-perspective excuse of mine, I think that its the latter which is the truth. A new set of experiences will give way to a new framework (still in technical training) and a new person.

Though philosophy apart and personally speaking, this will be a freaking awesome situation, as now he will be experiencing his past second hand, filtered through his near and dear ones (read ‘me’ in utkarsh‘s case). A little convincing and a lot of planning, is all I will require to make him an underwear-ninja of sorts 🙂

Totally hooked onto Questionable Content. Do pay a visit.
