“The placing of the personality in a particular part of the body is cultural. Most Europeans place themselves in the head, because they have been taught that they are the brain. In reality of course the brain can't feel the concave of the skull, and if we believed with Lucretius that the brain was an organ for cooling the blood, we would place ourselves somewhere else. The Greeks and Romans were in the chest, the Japanese a hand’s breath below the navel, Witla Indians in the whole body, and even outside it. We only imagine ourselves as ‘somewhere’.”
— Keith Johnstone, Impro
We do not exist “in” our bodies anymore. We snapped a part of our brains and eyes and we implanted them on our mobile phones. A part of our brains is Google itself now, and we are not ashamed to use this extrapolated brain and its capabilities incessantly. As the mind-body duality dissolves itself into an entanglement of elongations of corporeality and consciousness, we are becoming liminality as we live entangled lives on both virtual and corporeal realms. It is a frictionless effort in understanding that our daily life experiences are predominantly metaphysical and in that sense, it transcends the dichotomy of sacred and profane, work and play, real and virtual.
