Me?
I Am.
I know that.
I appreciate that fact.
My universe, however, ignores Me.
My universe could exist without Me.
That is my question: am I “Me”?
The “me” of others is their pure certainty.
Their sense of “me” is all powerful, all pervading.
Which makes Me doubt how I can also be “Me”.
Logically, the truth is that there are numerous “me”s.
But when has Logic ever controlled emotional perceptions?
I’ve struggled with this problem for eternity.
Yet perception and Logic appears irrelevent.
Because of this, Truth emerges.
It creates an awareness.
It questions everything.
I’m not.
God.

    By way of an experiment again, I wanted to write something where the next sentence increased by one word, then decreased again (It goes from 1 - 10 then back again). Please don't ask me why, I've no idea ;) The subject matter just evolved from somewhere as I wrote it.

    Another successful experiment, Dr. Drew! Love the idea of "God" pondering such things.
