Took me a while to get back to this thread. I wanted to clarify my position to LMNO & anyone who commented on my post.
I think this is the really interesting part of all of this. It says to me that the monolithic-self (i.e the narrative of self continuity), along with the monotheistic god (the narrative of singular-continuous deity) are 'illusions'.
I'm not sure where how you arrived there fromQuoteyou can absolutely develop a language in isolation.
I was simply saying that a single person can develop a means of coding, storing, and recalling information absent any other person.
I do not consider MyselfNow to be the same person as MyselfThePast or MyselfTheFuture. I think that "I" is a narrative-illusion, which is useful within certain contexts. If you've develop language vis-a-vis, patterns of symbols which can be decoded by any audience with the right context, you're communicating to others, even if they are your future iterations.
