I was thinking about this question a few weeks ago and it seems a good one to post. I'm not sure if there has already been a topic on this as I'm new, so I'll just go ahead. Who is truer: Who I was, Who I am, or Who I will be? As a child I swore that I'd become a Ghost Buster. Yea yea... we all had crazy ideas, I was only in preschool. What troubled me about this however is the following: If I betrayed the faith I had as a preschooler that I would become a ghost buster, then what good was my current faith in what I would do? Of course, one's ideas are more liable to change when they are a preschooler, but the principle remains the same. What identity does the future hold? After a small bit of thought, I decided that one's true identity must be a sort of melodic string. We often think of our identity as a single point, what and who we are now. If one adds more dimensions to this model, he/she finds that it becomes a living, breathing, multidimensional thing. Of course there are many biological factors to all this, but the idea is interesting. I want to know what some other people think about the question. Who is truer: Who I was, Who I am, or Who I will be?
