I don’t think it is ever possible to know oneself completely.
Forget about anyone else.

The beginning of all philosophy, the first subject, is "me" or "I" - because there is the small chance to understand why things are done, why feelings are, why it is as it is. And by empathy the human being can try to understand another human being - in the act of understanding this, that the other human being has feelings, thoughts similar to mine and so I can anticipate things and reactions, there is the beginning of human society, a fundamental act. Man recognizes another two legged animal as man, not animal. Also enclosed is the miraculous fact that any human being can be anything to any other human being.

Life is a battle to know oneself, to win oneself

austere said...

mago- but there are surprises all the time, even with oneself.


hobo- it is?

mago said...

"Small chance" - and surprises all the way. And probably no end.

Your statement - so appropriate. Plus, we are also always changing (in a state of constant flux), shaped by our own journey in life. How can we even get to know ourself? The comming weeks experiences will mould us differently. It is always a moving target.

Yet, a non acceptance.
Always a yet.
