What are you?

If we’ve ever talked shop, or you’ve seen some of my slides, you know I like talking about what constitutes “you.” Especially as it pertains to the ever-changing, continually in flux, nature of our cells.

Which is why my friend Anthony knew I would enjoy this video (thanks for forwarding it along!) I particularly enjoy their discourse on our non-static essence. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that “people never change!” I could talk about this for hours, and I’ve devoted much of my research to the subject, but I’ll let the videos take it away– they do a really beautiful job.

What are you?

 

I also really enjoyed their Ship of Theseus explanation!

You are two.
