In this mind-bending philosophy talk, Jeff Carreira flips our most fundamental ideas about ourselves upside down. We are taught to imagine that we were born a somebody who was given a name. In this talk you will see that it just might be the case that your name is just a word that has been wrapped itself around a set of beliefs about being someone. In this talk you will see how the practice of meditation can help us question our own existence. This talk introduces a thought-provoking vision of how identify forms that challenges all of your assumptions about yourself.
“Your identity is a story about you, that you assume is pointing to an actual person that that story is about.”
