Human Beings have parts... many parts. We don't know when we shift from one identitly to the next, but if the phone rings and it is our boss, our mother, or our child, the person we were just speaking with won't know who just showed up. And when we shift back to being 'ourselves' with our friend, we won't even know we shifted. You can make this whole shifting thing conscious.Then things start getting interesting.
A Human Being Is Like A Tornado, Sustained By The Energy Flowing Through Her.
We are 'Dissipative Structure' Capable - in the correct circumstances - of being precisely perturbed and suddenly reordering into a more elegant, more sophisticated functionaing.
Shifting Identity can feel at first a bit like going crazy, like a bird being freed after long imprisonment in a golden cage.
