"I am you in a different body"

 Q (@Qualohuasca)6 years, 4 months ago

Would anyone agree to this?
“I am you in a different body
I am you with a different past”.

I had this idea some time ago, extrapolating on the idea of Oneness found throughout the Internet these days. I kind of strongly feel and believe that what “I” feel as “me”, that is, my sense of self, is exactly the same as what anyone else feels. This is sort of hard to explain because of the inherent (although necessary) sense of separation we’re stuck with (not to even mention the limits that our languages impose) but think of it like this;
You are reading words written by yourself from another universe, sort of. A you with different experiences and thus different views and opinions. Just like I am writing to myself, all the different “I”s that we are.

When you think of your Self, there is a certain emotion linked to that concept. You can feel “me”. “Me” is, then, also a feeling. And I believe that feeling is exactly the same with everyone. That is, it’s exactly the same feeling, and exactly the same “me”.

Does anyone else feel that we are all one and the same being, seemingly restricted by space and time? Does anyone find any logical fault in this idea? Or is this just another one of my weird schizotypal musings that doesn’t really have a head nor a tail? :D

@qualohuasca, nope it makes perfect sense. the atoms that make “me” existed since the big bang, taking on a whole variety of forms, mixing in the big universal pot of energy with all the other atoms that all us creatures are made out of. Where are the real lines of separation between anything? it all occurs in the same “space”. then the human mind comes in and labels different phenomenon which gives the illusion of separate things.

Reading your post was cool i got the sensation like i wrote that to myself from another universe.

but then again, who says i didnt? :0

You are SO not alone in thinking this. The “Collective Consciousness” theory would be something to look into, and I would definitely read this story http://www.galactanet.com/oneoff/theegg_mod.html

@qualohuasca, There is an idea by old philosophies and religions, also entertained by Friedrich Nietzsche, called Eternal Recurrence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_return

The possibilities of an infinite universe include things like you spend an infinite time in both existence and non-existence, that in every cycle the chances of coming into existence are not just a possibility but a probability over time. Then you can get into time/space mechanics where what you suggest could theoretically occur.
