"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."
-- Oscar Wilde
Real people are the Player character in the RPG of Life. Or, if life were a role playing game, that's what you'd call them. They are the ones who think for themselves, the innovators, revolutionaries, and true leaders.
Do you ever notice that when you're in a new place, you see people who look like aquaintances and old friends? Some might say this is because all humans are biologically identical and therefore there is a limited amount of physical variation possible. Do not buy into this myth. The "people" you see are echoes of your own mind, images brought in to fill the vast expanse of space given to humanity.
I'm a real person. Are you?
