I was watching this the other day and I remember thinking that if we base our identities on such loose groupings of context, then maybe the voices are not so much part of me as I thought. It throws into doubt the whole question of who or what I am, mentally. But that’s not a bad thing, in a way it is quite liberating. It gave me a sense of freedom.

Thank you for posting this Kerome.very interesting indeed. And yes I think quite helpful. This idea of over recognition makes a lot of sense with my experiences. A lot to ponder here

Yes that’s what I thought. If the brain can think it owns a rubber arm, why can it not think it owns all kinds of things in its inner space? Including voices — are voices a part of us or are they not? Our identity seems to be quite flexible.
