Being No One

The Self-Model Theory of Subjectivity 

"According to Thomas Metzinger, no such things as selves exist in 
the world: nobody ever had or was a self. All that exists are 
phenomenal selves, as they appear in conscious experience. The 
phenomenal self, however, is not a thing but an ongoing process; it 
is the content of a 'transparent self-model.'"

   we think ourselves to be." Henri Amiel (1821-1881)
