Multiple Personality

Last week I´ve shown you a split personality with my SPA challenge piece, a man torn between the wish to explore the world and the need to stay at home.
This week´s SPA challenge is themed "Illusion", and here´s not a split but a multiple personality ...
Don´t you sometimes feel like there are different characters within your own self? don´t you find you act like one of your ancestors always did? or do you recognize some facial expressions in your own face that you´ve always hated when you observed your parents? or don´t you sometimes think you carry shades of your own self with you that you had hoped to have overcome years ago? So ... feeling like a multiple personality does not necessarily mean to be sick at all ... I really think we all have those feelings from time to time. But of course it´s an illusion if you don´t believe in constructivism. Does reality exist or is it an illusion? And what´s your role in that game?

wow a very thought provoking post - I always think current and future generations are so much luckier with video as they will be able to "see" their ancestors - it would be nice to know what traits I carry of those who have gone before.
