Episode notes

‘Two clones wake up in identical rooms, and are told that one is near a mountain, the other is near a lake. Either of them can ask, “Am I the one near the mountain, or the lake?”, and there can be an answer. But interestingly, a third person cannot even formulate this ‘which clone is which’ as a question that can have an answer.

Philosophy professor Dr Miriam Schoenfield teaches a course called 'Who am I?' I ask her: what do you think is your self? How did you become interested in the question of the self? I share my lifelong journey of questioning the self that led to non-duality, then we compare our perspectives on the self, subjective vs objective facts, dream vs reality and the continuity of the self over time.
