  • 'Still, identity is a slippery issue, and no single approach can nail it. For instance, I don't think that there's a stable or essential "me". I am an amalgamtion of many things: books I've read, movies i've seen, television shows I've watched, songs I've sung, lovers I've loved. In fact, I'm a creation of so many people and so many ideas, to the point where I feel I've actually had few original thoughts and ideas; to think that I've had an original thought or feeling and then, at 2am, while watching an old movies on TV that I haven't seen in many years, the protagonist will spout something that i had previously claimed as my own. In other words, I took his words (which of course, weren't really "his words" at all), internalised them, and made them my own. This happens all the time.'
