Am i someone else?

I sometimes think "it's pure chance that I was born in the west and have all this Stuff". I could have been born in Africa or China".
Then I think, "perhaps I was born somewhere else. Perhaps I am someone else and someone else is me."
Do you get what I mean?

Is time travel possible? Einstein believed in it.

Some times I look at people and don't listen to them while they are talking. Instead I think that I would like to frech-kiss them. Not because I'm in love, just for pure curiosity.

My constant thought while living in China.

"There but for the Grace of Is goes I"

edit: found it.. flowery language was used to handle the pain of duplicity of justice in the world.

"we are children of a dream. the collective dream of humanity.

yet, being born of this dream, living it, walking among it- the dream becomes more than a dream, more than reality.
it becomes nothing.

noseeums nibbling us into a mellifluous sleep.

if you think that's bad, wait until you hear this- those living outside the dream want nothing more than to live inside it. to be exactly where you are- being eaten away in honeyed ecstacy.

Only, they will know it's a dream."

Sometimes in the least appropriate situations i start thinking what this board would comment about it. Then i get confused because i don't know how would be the first to answer and i have to figure out all the possible combinations.

sometimes it feels like im the only one thats really here... like my mind makes everyone up. its kind of a matrix style thing... like, when i go to a place, everyone is just thought up to be there.

or i have this really bad habit of just sitting there, drifting off in my own head of what it would be like to be with someone else. i've been in the same relationship for close to 2 years now, and its like.. "hmm... i wonder how my life would be if i broke up with him and went out with this guy" sometimes i can make up a whole future of me and someone in my head, from the first date, to the day that we break up... pity, i can never see me getting married to anyone. the thought just freaks me out lately... lately meaning this past year.

wait... have any of you been in trance of thought... then forgot what you were thinking, so you go through all the things you can remember to get back to that thought... only to find that your mind has just pulled a Windows error on you?

I dream about all of you when I am awake.
I dream about me when I'm asleep.

Sometimes I think about death and I freak out. What is more scary, everlasting life, or nothingness? I don't know. Have to push it out of my mind.
