Nobody Else Can Sit In That Chair But You....

It can be painful when it dawns on the brain that its precious sense of self never actually existed

And yet the sense of self is the only tool the brain has to consider its own ultimate irrelevance.

It means nobody else can sit in that chair but you....

The sense of personal identity is woven by the brain out of its remembered past and hoped for future.
It is a streaming phantom, appearing in the objectified momentary.
It is a frame of reference not an entity
