“The self is not constant … it roots around for ways to fit in, because the self likes to feel replicated - to belong.  That confirms it’s existence and it’s importance … But we assume that the self is an actual living thing, but it’s not.  It’s a projection which our clever brains create in order to cheat ourselves from the reality of death.”  - Thank you, Thandie Newton
