Remaking the Self

Phil Ford just put up a terrific post over on Dial M, and I'm pasting in here a comment I made on it.

>>Wonderful post. Reminded me of, and sent me back to, your "Where is the self that performs?" post. I'd quibble that ignorance can be, but doesn't necessarily have to be, a willed state. Your point of it being a way to define the self is terrific. Hope you come back to the dualism of objectivity/subjectivity, and the challenge "to know ourselves and not just the things we study". Maybe one way of talking about the "in the flow" state is that the music is remaking you while you're making it.<<
