    your picture
    i think that everyone has glanced at a picture
    of themselves and had that moment in which
    you question if it really is 'you'....

    this happened to me recently....

    i saw a picture of myself and although its
    current, i just don't think that its how i
    see myself.

    its hard to explain in text... but its like,
    i had a perspective-splitting moment that
    i justified only as:

    1) how others see me
    2) how i see myself

    i see this image and although there are
    slight degrees of 'me' in it, i just don't
    think its a picture of how i see myself when
    i look into a mirror.

    in fact, upon looking at this image, i wondered
    if this is how everyone sees me... and i'm
    actually seeing someone completely different
    when i look at myself.

    the only 'decent' justification i could give
    myself was a simple one: (analogy)

    imagine a free-flowing blob traveling through
    environmental space. while there may be some
    points in which the blob looks similar,
    there is no two points in which the blob
    is exactly the same.

    the blob itself could question what single
    'shape' determines the 'actual look' of the
    blob.

    while i understand that this analogy may be
    spot-on, it doesn't seem to answer the simple
    question: why when i look at this image of
    'me'... does the person in the image really
    seem like some other person.

    its a very vacant, personal sensation...
    and one i can't fully grasp here.


    just thought i'd ramble

    I thought about this the other day except I wondered how I'd see myself if someone made a video of me or I saw myself on TV. In all honesty, I'd be a bit hesitant to look at it and see myself exactly how others see my. I guess I like to live in my fantasy world and I'm not sure that's such a bad thing....
