Strange. Perhaps, the most common feeling in humanity is precisely that deepest and earnest desire to be, somehow, unique. Screaming in the face of the world, at the top of our lungs, or just murmuring it, this tiny little thing that says, I exist. Who cares if I don’t really know who I am, as long as I can prove that I exist, and I am something different from you. This primary consciousness, today, seems to isolate any personal implication : I exist because you say it, because you see me. If I get in front of a camera, then I am. Wow. And If I don’t?
