Sequences of Static Snapshots

  • sequence of:
    • images played back at 30fps creates movement
    • values can create a dynamic entity (object)
    • memories creates identity (self)
    • associationism:

      idea that mental processes operate by the association of one mental state with its successor states

  • all are illusions in some sense

an identity is an entity that has a state, which is its value at a point in time

  • identity is a story that brain tells itself, there's no real me, each person has different simulation of me and I have one (or more) as well - self is an illusion made through Sequences of Static Snapshots
