Everyone loves.

Everyone is a lover.

Everyone hates.

A hater habitually identifies with that feeling.

We are just talking.

X: Who is this “we”? Y: I’ll leave it to you to answer such unanswerable questions.

Online entity with all my thoughts and feelings.

Whatever it might be, it sure as hell cannot be identified as “me.”

Identification of “the people.”

Mirror images.

If I’m going to identify with an image, I might as well enjoy it.

It travels well.

My pleasure, my pain.

Self-destructive acts feed the self’s feelings of significance.

Identification and selfhood.

Our selves are always more and less than the identities we already more or less assume.
