[posted by Callimachus]

My experience of myself is dominated by memories of looking down at my hands doing something: Writing, typing, holding a book, playing guitar, working at something on the tool bench, driving a car. When I think of "me" that is what floats into the mind: my forearms and hands, doing something. When I look in the mirror I'm startled; is that, in fact, what other people see?
