So I was wondering,
Imagine that you woke up and didn't know who you were. You didn't have anyone around you who could tell you a thing about your past.
Who would you become?
I have been thinking recently of how people turn out and what makes some a sociopath, others saintly, others awesome, and so on.
Then I began to think about what traits we manifest and what talents we think we have. What latent talents we assume about ourselves that we have yet
to try out.
So my question, Who would you become if all you had to go off about your past was a face in a mirror, and a few scars here and there, some muscle
memory, and natural conditions of your body.
I like to think about who I would choose to become without any preconceptions of who I am supposed to be. I sometimes scare myself with the
possibilities. What if I used my intelligence to do harm. What if I used all my strengths to take advantage of others like some sort of lame ass,
Then I think about how awesome I could be. What if I became the champion of a truly good cause. What if I did something worthy of a page in history
for its great good.
I don't know. What if I did nothing and became an introvert. What if I became a crazy bum.
The possibilities of turning out exactly the same or even similar are very low.
What do you guys think. What you would emerge from a spurt of amnesia?
