Eclipse Phase brings up many interesting questions regrading the ideas of self-identity and reality. My question to those on the Forum is: Do you seriously ask yourself these kind of questions in your day-to-day lives?
I do. A lot. So much that it bogs me down as I try to figure out if I'm even real or have been forked to do some menial task while the original wanders elsewhere. I wonder about reality, and how everything we experience translates to nothing more than the communication between sensory organs and synapses. I remember things that never existed or occurred but forget other things so easily.
I know I'm going to sound like a conspiracy whack-job, but maybe schizophrenia isn't the disease, but the cure. As we question our existence and the nature of the self, we chip away at something that is keeping us imprisoned and blindfolded.
Schizophrenics make for interesting storytellers.
