            How many do you have? Read Kant, Sartre or Huxley. This universe is but a big stage, inwhich one is playing many parts and all the parts are the same thing.

              Just one,  only me.  You can read many books, and yes the  universe is huge, but that does not mean there are a lot of me's.  That would be a mess.  lol,  Nope, just me.

                Look at it this way. We play many parts just as ourselve's. One part is played at work, one at play and one at home. These are but just a few masks we wear. I am always a philosopher and I play only that role, for that is what I am. I see the fact that I am just a small part of the greater whole and I play my role out with continuity.

            It's an internal question. Why do I think the things I do? Am I not in control, as "I" think I am? Who is thinking these thoughts for me? When I am thinking, how is it that I am thinking at all? How do I know I'm thinking anything? If I'm a natural part of this universe, is it possible that I'm doing as the universe intended? Is it possible that the universe is thinking with me?
