I was doing some editing on my dissertation, and I “relearned” something. I had simply forgotten it. It’s wierd to learn from your own writing, but I had to take a break to share this with you.
Most interaction is not between whole persons but between aspects of persons having to do with their roles and memberships in particular groups or organizations: their identities.
When you interact with someone, you interact with one of their me’s. You interact with a role they’re playing or one of their identities. You cannot blame the whole person – their I. Don’t get me wrong, you can trust their me, but it’s fascinating to me that you can interact with multiple versions of someone else’s me’s.
Me don’t know. Me is just saying. (It might be grammatically wrong, but theoretically right).
