The concept of everybuddy and every life form on the planet being an extension of one's spirit has always resonated with me. The basic genetic makeup is shared by all on earth.

We are all me. It is the same conscious entity in each of us with the trappings of genetic variation and expressed in the fractured form of individual identity.
The game I want to play in life with all you other yous as a fellow me is to know that we are all me and we are all you. It is actually psychotic to treat all the other mes badly because we are doing it to another me who has exactly the same reactions to pain, pleasure happiness and sadness emotions. I wish we could all play the game of caring about the other mes as we do about the me that we are.
I get confused sometimes because all the other mes demand that I assert the me that I am or else take advantage of me. In that respect I have to force myself to defend the me that I am because the other mes will inflict pain of some kind if I don't. They don't appear to be as aware that the me that I am is exactly the me that they are. That is what selfishness is; being me to a psychotic degree where it causes pain to the other mes and not allowing that to be a controlling factor of the way this me behaves.
Equal rights and respect for all mes so we can all be mes together with as little hassle to each other as possible.
