There are many many questions worth asking on this planet all of them worthy of deep thought and discussion.
Everything about me is who I am, it's really that simple. A house is constructed of many different materials the finished product is a house, I as an individual consist of organic matter which make my body, I am a consciously aware being that has thoughts and memories which only belong to me, they maybe simlar to someone elses, but they are mine. Everything about me is who I am.
Let Us Reason Life, Please don't attempt to put words in my mouth in order to manipulate my statements to conform with your own reasoning.
I am not my body nor am I my mind, my body and mind are both a part of me, when I refer to myself or the "I am" this includes every aspect of my body, persona, mind, attributes....every association within my body is me it's who I am. I am a complete individual identity, I am "as one" with all of me.
Thinking critical wrote: "I am" includes my body, persona, mind, attributes.
But without your body, "persona, mind, attributes" cease to exist. So, Can I say 'you are your body?'
I am "as one" with all of me.
with all of me?!?
Which "you" is the real you without which you cannot exist?
If i didn't have a body we wouldn't be hving this conversation, can you provide me with proof that varifys bodyless beings exist?. My body is part of me, my brain which is part of my body generates my mind, other people may see my physical body yet in my presence they will experience and percieve my persona/character/attributes.
reason for life asks: "Which "you" is the real you without which you cannot exist?"
What do you mean which you? there is only one me, that is the real me, that is what is meant by I am as one with all of me. There are sepreate parts to me but I am an individual entity and am reffered to as one person, THAT IS ME.
Youre simply playing linguistic games in an attempt to establish a claim with no grounds, why try to seperate the physical and mental as two individual ID's? I have a body and I have a mind that is primarily what I am. I am NOT my body I am NOT my mind, my body and mind collectively make me who I am.
