I believe now that we are greater than the sum of our parts. If you take her genetic code and you add her life experiences and the relationships she had with people, and then you take the size and shape of her body, you do not get her. There is something else entirely. There is a part of her greater than the sum of her knowable parts and that part has to go somewhere, because it cannot be destroyed.
We are as indestructible as we think ourselves to be. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are.
