Most People Are Other People

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Just gotta quote this one...

    No one really is special. It's circumstances/luck that tend to make people stand out. All people come from other people. Their thoughts are an amalgamation of other's opinions, to suggest otherwise is probably a shallow judgement. Beneath the surface, once you get to know the individual you can understand their uniqueness. Mimicry is a good biological and behavioral skill to have and not something easy to perfect. I don't know what the last clause means.

    True that. Though to suggest our very essence is comprised entirely of what others have taught us or exposed us to also seems to suggest we have no soul; no core of being that is truly our own... little depressing to think of ourselves that way. Even if I do sometimes think of ourselves that way. Would be nice if it wasn't so though.

    As for the mimicry I believe it's referenced more so as unintentional such. That we latch onto norms. Succumb to groups and peers and pressures and all such things; willingly join the flock on a subconscious level, mirroring traits of others since/if we inherently don't have any of our own, products of circumstance and instinct more so than intentional; directed personal transformation... well in part still directed, but y'get what I'm sayin' I hope...

    The last bit: I read that as a reflection on this. On mirroring the things others have said as a passion of our own. Seeing a quote that resonates with us and feeling a need to share and/or embody that into ourselves. Just like I'm doing here.

    A conclusive: and this is how it's done.
