Remembering a Lost One

The Individual is an Illusion

I have thought about this recently on a trip to Vancouver. I was reading Bertrand Russell’s The Problem of Philosophy. He was describing the illusions of reality of both the physical and the mental.

The Loss of Presence = The Loss of Being

I have friends from England and Slovakia, Spain and the Netherlands, Australia and the United States of America. I don’t see these friends regularly. What I do see is an image that is fixed in my memory. That image changes. Some of those people I have forgotten because of the limited contact I have with them. Some of them have probably passed away.
