At what precise moment…
…does an individual stop being who he thinks he is? You know, I don’t like complications.
Cut off my arm. I say, “Me and my arm.”
You cut off my other arm. I say, “Me and my two arms.” You…take out…
…take out my stomach, my kidneys,
assuming that were possible…
And I say, “Me and my intestines.”
And now, if you cut off my head…
…would I say, “Me and my head” or “Me and my body”? What right has my head to call itself me?
