Existence

In bed again. Can’t sleep again. This sucks. I really need sleep, but can’t seem to fall asleep. Apparently study has shown that the mind is more wide awake the later it is into the night.. Whatever.

Today in English class, we had quite the intense discussion about existence. We just finished reading Mark Twain’s “The Mysterious Man” (highly recommend) and someone at the end of the book said that the only person who exists is you, everyone else are people you invented. So suppose you’re talking to some friends. They don’t exist. You just invented some people/friends and you’re inventing the conversation that’s taking place. It was pretty interesting.

Coincidentally, I saw something on the Internet just a few hours ago that said that this well known person (sadly I forgot his name. He was old though…) once said that when we talk to people, there are 6 different forms of us (or something like that). One is the person we see ourselves as, another is what you think the other person sees you as, and then the person we really are(the remaining three is from the other person’s side). So who’s doing the actual talking?

Pretty cool and twisted when you think about it. Inception much? Haha. Love philosophy.
