• What is self

    We name ourselves and there is a uniqueness in the naming.  We are separated off from all other creatures, etc., and that’s when with the sense of “I”. There are many cultures where they don’t use “I” very much, especially in Aboriginal cultures, but there is a sense of “I” in the sense of recognizing that they are a unique individual, perhaps very closely tied to the group and perhaps all of their behavioral characteristics very, very much modified by their inclusion within the group.
