So once I had a dream that there were two of us. I mean two of me and two of you.
Hey that’s interesting.
Yeah. It was weird. Like we had parallel lives in the same houses and we just accepted that there were two of us. Like you would say, ‘oh the other me went to the shops today. I’m so glad she did because I really needed knickers.’
The two me’s share knickers? That’s weird.
Well not really when you think about it because it is you, just another you. You’re the same, though. Same person.
How can we be the same person if we are two different people?
Think of it this way, imagine your reflection stepped out of your mirror.
That would be awful.
Hear me out okay? She stepped out of your mirror and then she started just being you but in a non threatening way. She just did the things you didn’t like doing, like, I dunno, buying knickers..
I love buying knickers. They are so pretty. I want to buy my own knickers.
OK, ok, how about taking the bins out or cleaning the litter tray?
Yes, that stuff.
And going to work for you when you really don’t want to and doing your taxes and all that. And she doesn’t complain because she is YOU, just the reflection version. So you are still doing all of that only now you have double the man power and double the brain power and double the hair and nails and feet and fingers. So, really, you would be at an advantage. Imagine cooking dinner, you could just relax and read a book and you could also chop onions and fry vegetables.
What about if the reflection turned against me?
Hmmm, yes. That could be a possibility. You have a real whole functioning brain that is pretty much a spare brain so why WOULDN’T you want to become your own separate person?
Well, I must think about that and get back to you.
Can’t wait to hear about it.
Ok. See you tomorrow.
