So many embodied-folk are so uncertain of their own certainty*, seemingly believing that their very being may be false and thus needing to deny to others the right to their own being.

*Self-identity: Everybody has one but only the few know it. Everyone claims to know the self but most mix-up self with non-self (Nation, State, color, religion, education, work, wealth, mind, activities, desires ... ad infinitum).

Today's assignment, class, is to write a short essay describing yourself. However, you can not use adjectives nor adverbs.
Your self is not what you know, have, do, make, hate or love.
Your self has constantly been there your entire life as witness of all the changes, remembered and unremembered over time. From infancy to now, from preschool ignorance to life-long learned knowledge.

Describe that 'Self'

The crazies at the gate haven't a clue about you because they are ignorant about their selves.
They are dangerous because they act out their pain by giving it away.
