To (maybe?) clarify, sometimes I like to have a bit o' fun:
1) Did A2K change me or did I change A2K?
2) Could I even tell if A2k changed me given I would have no prior frame of easy reference?
3) Reinterpreting the word “myself” in my original post one could say: I’ve changed myself through intent and not just by exposure to A2K.
This reminds me of the old man who goes to the doctor, the doctor asks the old fella if he tends to be forgetful, the old guy replies “how would I know if I can’t remember if I forgot!”
