When there is someone in ones head, living becomes something one did before this someone took up residence there.
So if this "person" or self in ones head is evicted or aborted, then one begins living again (leaving an interim of not having lived);
and thus one has a life at the beginning of the lifespan and also at the end, with a piece of not having lived in between them.
Picture it, if you will, as a white length of string stained along a stretch in the middle.
If one has no life at the end of the lifespan (closer to death than the beginning, but hopefully nowhere near death),
then one never discovers that living is something authority resolves to deprive one of surreptitiously, by providing one with an illusion of living (also called "authority" so that with no authority one is still alive).
Consider the statement, "I am someone to you!". Now factor in the circumstance that I mean this as a deception. I am not the person I mean for you to accept me for.
There we have one false person, meaning for one true person to accept it as a true person. This can't happen! The false person, "me" (as I want you to "see" me), must evoke a false person "you", before it is truly accepted by you, thus by "you" (meaning that you have left "the building").
You don't fully accept this false "me", to the point of occluding (eclipsing, obscuring) the real me, until you are conceiving of exploiting this "me"!
That's the moment of taking the bait!
And that's the death of you, and the rise of "you", which rises inside your head.
