Unchanging [Jun. 12th, 2012|09:56 am]
Tony Grist
Consciousness never changes; it remains steady, like the little blue flame of a pilot light.  I know my attitudes have changed- enormously; that my body has changed goes without saying; but the something else- the something that observes the changes with interest- is the same bright, clear, ageless, androgynous thing it was when it registered the fact that is was sitting in front of an open cupboard full of toys and observed to itself, "So this is what it's like to be four".

I remember at some stage of early childhood thinking "when I am old will I still feel like me?" I think the answer is very much yes.

The self I knew myself to be at four was (if this makes sense) quite as grown up and complete as I am now.
