What I have becomes part of my general valuation. The situation of the invested self is a little bit like the situation of Voldemort’s horcruxes in Harry Potter: the object you have is invested with a part of your soul. It doesn’t give you immortality, it gives you credit. But then again, we’re not wizards.
