The impossible

#1 Post by Compassionist » March 23rd, 2020, 8:54 pm

I think it is impossible to truly know someone else. Only you know what it is like to be you. Only I know what it is like to be me. Unless one has lived in the brain and the body of another person, one can't truly know what it is like to be another person. If I had the genes, environments, nutrients and experiences of a chicken, I would be that chicken and behave like a chicken. If I had the genes, environments, nutrients and experiences of you, I would be you and think, feel and behave like you. If you had my genes, environments, nutrients and experiences, you would be me and think, feel and behave like me. We are not free from causality. We are one with causality.
