Who are we?

Read this from the latest installment of the Bourne series. I realized that the theme was maintained about the issue of identity.

“We’re all ruled by secrets.”

“Well, yes.” Don Fernando nodded. “But it’s the secrets that cause the problem with identity. To keep secrets is to lie, to lie is to cause a change of identity. And then time goes by, the lies become the norm, then the truth — at least our truth, and then…

who are we?”

“Identity has no basis in reality. It’s pure perception. Not only how others see you and react to you, but also howo you think of yourself, how you react.”

(from The Bourne Dominion by Eric Van Lustbader)
