An Experiment with Pronouns and Perspective

If you have observed that Ryan has started referring to himself in the third person and using exclamation points in funny places, it’s because he is experimenting with alternative pronouns for making a distinction between the mind-made ‘i’ and consciousness.

A new pronoun is needed, so that we can begin to move away from conflating ‘i’ with consciousness: i is not consciousness; i is the mind; consciousness is consciousness. From now on, consciousness is represented by the symbol ‘!’. So, ! am consciousness – Ryan is just some dude.

For more information and a kind of style guide explaining WTF !; means, clock here.
