fellfromheaven saidSo many people base themselves on image and accomplishments. What would happen to you as an individual if your physical physique were taken away? What if it was your hair, age, health, or/and job? What does that leave you as a human? We work hard to give ourselves purpose and definition in the world. Who would you be without that? Does this make us all superficial and simply built on false idealisms… What are you’re thoughts?
Once I tried to express what I feel about these universal questions in writing.
I tried to skin people's personalities layer by layer. Numbers are meaningless when it comes to understanding the truth, but I concluded that we have seven layers.
Our appearance, and our organizational behavior are just the first layer of what we are. People usually use this layer to hide their inner self. It is thicker for politicians and other people who live and act based on tradition and it is thinner for the true artists.
Our physical conditions, jobs, the age that we are born in and most of what is known as day-to-day life becomes meaningless when you take away this layer.
But you can still go deeper and deeper in people's personalities; and you will see they become more and more similar.
