Dear Multiverse
ANY question will be answered. We care.

Do you know who you are? What you are? Do you ever forget? What would you do if you forgot?

Marc reminds me.

Or I read the blackboard. My journals.
28th-Jun-2009 04:23 am (UTC)
How does he remind you?

The blackboard? Do you live in a school?
28th-Jun-2009 04:35 am (UTC)
I don't know who I am. Not anymore, anyway.
28th-Jun-2009 04:36 am (UTC)
Do you know your name? Or where you are from? Why don't you know?
28th-Jun-2009 04:40 am (UTC)
Yes. Yes. It's possible.

I do not think that there is a way to answer your final inquiry accurately. If I forgot who, or what, I am, I would lose context for my actions and motivations, thus making me a different entity. I could not predict this new entity's actions.

What I mean to say is, if you forgot who you were and you wanted to remember, what do you think that you would do to remember? Or is that the same answer?

Someone is still wandering around the Nexus trying to figure out how the heck to get back to Gotham. But texts are nice!

Yes, at least as much as I can. Scientifically, yes; Metaphorically, no. Sometimes. I either get reminded and it comes back to me or it is lost forever in my head.

Lost forever in your head?

Or where ever memories go when you don't remember them. I don't have an eidetic memory, so eventually things get pushed out or written over or something. To make way for new stuff. I don't remember learning to read, but I can. That sort of thing.

I can forget who I am if I chose to. I just don't want to. What would be the point of that? Starting over a new life sounds dreadful, I'm fine with the one I have.
28th-Jun-2009 05:12 am (UTC)
Why would you want to forget who you are? Why would you choose to do that? Why does the possibility exist? I am not fine with the one I have, but my choices aren't very optimal.

Who I am doesn't remain completely constant, though I do my best. But I never lose myself so totally that I forget what I am.

I find that when someone's "who" gets somewhat lost it helps the remembering process to keep something or someone meaningful close at hand.

Such as what?
28th-Jun-2009 01:32 pm (UTC)
I know who I am, despite that everyone keeps trying to make me into something else.
28th-Jun-2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
What are they trying to make you into? How do you keep who you are while they try to make you into something else? How do they try to do that?

I know what I am and who I am. If I forgot someone would remind me. It's mostly there in my flesh for the eye to see.

I don't understand.

Why do you forget when you're at the library?

Why easier? Why shorter?

I am never sure what I truly am. It is an uneasy truce between distinctly different things.

I have forgotten, in the past. I searched until I found the truth.

The truth, I will add, is never easy.
29th-Jun-2009 02:26 am (UTC)
What is your truth? May I ask?
29th-Jun-2009 02:52 am (UTC)
I've never forgotten who or what I am, though sometimes I'd like to.

A friend of mine did once, though, and if you ask me he was better off for it.
29th-Jun-2009 03:41 am (UTC)
Why would you like to? And why was he better off?
29th-Jun-2009 04:09 am (UTC)
Because we were made for a purpose, and it's not an easy one, and personally I'd rather just be normal. I thought he might have a chance at normality too, if he'd forgotten that purpose.
29th-Jun-2009 04:09 am (UTC)
I know who and what I am. I don't know what I'd do if I forgot... I guess it depends on who is near me and what their agenda is.
