Are you a figment of my imagination? Or is it me? 

By  Lysette Offley

Can I believe my eyes or are you a figment of my imagination?

Are you a figment of my imagination? Quote from Marcus Aurelius

It doesn’t seem to matter how many times we’re reminded that we’re all different…

Because we still go around expecting everyone else to share our opinions, values, beliefs etc.

‘Cos after all – our opinions, values, beliefs are right, aren’t they!

So of course everyone’s going to agree!

And that’s where the trouble starts!

The truth is that no two people are exactly alike.

No, not even identical twins.

And we process, store and retrieve information though our own filters; generalising, pruning and distorting as we go…

So is it any wonder our memories change over time?


Yes! I remember it well!

Do you have a magic coffee table too?
