“All persons have a body. This person’s body is different than any other person’s body because it is this person’s body. The body is an aspect of person. Person and body are integrated and in constant interplay. They can never be separated except in death. The body can do some things and not others. People become habituated to their body’s enormous range of abilities and incapacities. They generally know exactly what every part can do (of which they are or can be conscious). These capacities become accepted as a part of their person (“me”). This physical view of persons has been partly hidden by the cultural importance of and attention to individuality developed over the past number of centuries in Western European and American societies. Individuals sometimes presented themselves as though they were not also bodies.”
E. Cassell and D.S. Stoyanov

Zihin bir şeyi aklın buyruğuna göre kavradığı sürece, bu fikir ister gelecekte, ister geçmişte, ister şimdide olan bir şeyin fikri olsun, yine de ondan eşit ölçüde etkilenir.
