    Let's get a little philosophical here . My question here is: Who are you?

    Beware the question is not simple like it seems , Infact I predict that most people will ignore the thread or wouldn't take it seriously.

    I don't know who I really are, only some details of myself.

    I am I.
    I am a physical object that has brains wich tell the body to move and think.
    I am made of flesh and blood that is what me makes me.
    I think I am here because I feel I am here.
    I know I am something and that I am alive this is what I am.
    I am nothing more than a physical object that will remain on earth for a few 50-80 years and then I dissapear and everything that was me will be gone and I will no longer be me.

    I think that most people only know details of themselves but they don't know who they really are. It would be great to some people that know who really are to post here . Just in case this thread isn't about details of ourselves : Name , our looks , our gender etc . Is an existentialist one.

    I'm Bart Simpson! Who the hell are YOU? :tongue:

    But seriously. It's a good question. I've been wondering who I am lately, myself.

    That sounds like Buddhism emptiness.

    Um, no, actually. Back to your original question, it's something that I've been wondering, and debating, recently.

    Oh people are just trying to be deep - I call bullshit.

    I'm *insert real name*

    I just am - that is not only made up of, but is also a descritption of, everything I have seen, done, felt, been. I have a very strong sense of self - it is impossible to put it in to words* that others can understand so I sum it up with my name.

    * here, anyway - and in a way I am comfortable with

    I am no one and everyone.


    This reminds me of the time I forgot to take off my name sticker from a meeting and was walking around in public with it on and people were calling me by my first name - it disturbed me for some reason.

    Try it at the grocery store. Call the clerk by his or her first name and see what kind of reaction you get. I'd say most are off put when a stranger calls them by their first name.

    Most people that answer my thread took it as a joke like I predicted , so isn't my fault that the thread isn't " deep". Maybe I just way overestimated the capacity of most people here to discuss philosophy .

    I love sitting and thinking about things like this

    I surprise myself sometimes, the things I do I look back on and consider it as something that normally I wouldn't do.

    I have the ability to make myself laugh, not in a crazy person way, just the things I say (with intent to be funny) are the kind of things I would think were funny if someone else said, so I will often find myself laughing at something I have written or said.

    I have a very imaginative brain, one which I would not trade for anything, but to some people I may seem a bit 'weird' because of this

    I realise this isn't answering your question but it's a little bit of insight

    I think I'm the same as you though, I don't fully know my own personality and I wonder if I ever will know

    Who are you?
    by guess who?
    The Who

    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?

    I woke up in a Soho doorway
    A policeman knew my name
    He said "You can go sleep at home tonight
    If you can get up and walk away"

    I staggered back to the underground
    And the breeze blew back my hair
    I remember throwin' punches around
    And preachin' from my chair

    Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    I took the tube back out of town
    Back to the Rollin' Pin
    I felt a little like a dying clown
    With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

    I stretched back and I hiccoughed
    And looked back on my busy day
    Eleven hours in the Tin Pan
    God, there's got to be another way

    Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, who are you(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh Who the fuck are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    Who are you?
    ooh wa oo wa oo wa oo x11

    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?

    I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    C'mon tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    I know there's a place you walked
    Where love falls from the trees
    My heart is like a broken cup
    I only feel right on my knees

    I spit out like a sewer hole
    Yet still recieve your kiss
    How can I measure up to anyone now
    After such a love as this?

    Well who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    oh, I really wanna know? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    tell, tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    C'mon, c'mon who? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, Who the fuck are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, tell me who are you (Who are you?, ooo?)

    I really wanna to know
    Oh, I really want to know
    C'mon tell me who are you, you, you?
    Who are you?

    I pretty much know who I am, and the people who know me do, too. I'm exceptionally WYSIWYG - putting up facades and putting on airs is just way too much work. Those on this forum who have met me will likely tell you that in person, I'm exactly what I project on here. My primary life philosophy is pretty much "golden rule," treat people well (unless they give me a reason not to) and don't take no shit from nobody.
