How time creates identity
Listening | Philosophy of Mind | 2023-01-08
In this episode of Essentia Readings, actress Nadia Hassan reads an article by Bernardo Kastrup, wherein he argues that time is what creates the illusion of personal identity in the framework of one universal mind. Here’s Nadia’s introduction: “Today’s article explains, in a very elegant manner, how universal consciousness can indeed present as individual alters, simultaneously. With the help of a few real life examples, a powerful metaphor takes shape, allowing us to visualize how dissociation fundamentally occurs, and how the interplay of our individual perspectives is basically self-talk, from across timelines.” You can listen to this episode through your favorite podcasting platform by clicking here.
