Because a recorded thought is better than a wasted one

Who are we really?
We live in a world fabricated by everything we observe and experience from our own perspective. Everything and everybody we come into contact with has the potential to change our knowledge of our surroundings, our personalities, and emotions at any given time. Let's ask ourselves a very provocative question: If we actually wanted to, what does it take to change us completely at a genuine level? Does the core of us ever really change or is it just an external masking of how we interact with our perception of reality? What I'm proposing is that perhaps maybe people are afraid of changing themselves for the better through fear of inauthenticity. Maybe the reason we're so afraid of changing ourselves is that deep down we know we're still the same and on the outside it may even seem genuine, but internally we're only programming ourselves to abide by external stimuli that condition us. All of this leads to one massive realization: Are we really as in control of own lives as we think?
