Entry 016: Novara; Rachel.

Novara.
Rachel.

I've seen/heard these names a few times in sleep visions I've recently had. The former is written on a trader's map, written in a font different from any of the other scratchings on it, as if it were part of the original map from before the trader acquired it. In my native tongue, Novara has a few meanings, most often referring to 'beginning and end', and as a name, feminine, rarely used because it has the same connotations. Not sure, if the name on the map is the cartographer, name of the region, or name of the planet, but the map in question is of my homeland and in part, surrounding areas. The scratchings on the map indicated that my hometown is a favorite of this particular trader. I came across the map early one sleepless morning, just as some of the people that barter their goods in the market square were setting up their shops. Likely, the map wasn't discarded purposely, but I never found the owner. Yeah; I know not, the name of my home world, or the names of many areas. I in fact do not know much about the geography of my home world, as I've never actually studied it. Of course, if I did want to travel abroad for a living I'd have to, or would need a navigator who is in the trade.

I've heard this person's name a few times in my sleep visions. I've come to realize that, the person who this mortal flesh belongs to, goes by that name. Beyond that, I know nothing else, not even he/she/they/ana-kata. What it means, though, is that, the person who this mortal flesh belongs to, also does not go by what it says on any 'legal' document. Of course, we all know that #LegalIdentityIsSuperficial.

You know, I read this before, but only just now do I notice you are using ana-kata as a pronoun. Sounds a bit like using left-right or up-down as a pronoun... which actually I guess makes as much sense as any gendered pronoun so... :P

 

Also, you know if you don't like your legal identity you can usually change it? Also also, controversial opinion time: If you ask me all identity is superficial anyway. A person is too complex a thing to be summed up by a name and a pronoun. Also also also: Ugh why do you have to use fake hashtags? Then again why do I have to use so many alsos?

I was wondering if that would actually catch your attention, lolz
But seriously, I just used it in place of 'etcetera'.

We're in agreement, but you sound just like my mom; that is exactly what she would say.
What I mean by 'legal' identity being superficial is that anything on paper can be erased/rewritten/forgotten, therefore, inferior.
What makes a hashtag 'fake' though? Do ya have answer for that, mon amour?

Hehe I know, but I thought it was amusing anyway.

One might say even memories can be erased/rewritten/forgotten as well. Some might even argue that writing something down makes something more real then just being in someone's head, because that way you have a paper trail. Isn't that the whole point of legal identity, to have a paper trail? Isn't that why you are supposed to keep a little piece of paper someone wrote for you when you were born somewhere as safe and secure as possible? Sure it's silly that a little bit of paper is needed to say that you are you, but really no more silly then anything else you could use to prove you are who you say you are. Perhaps the most foolproof method is blood, but of course you are not even using your original body are you?
 

Also: As for what makes a hashtag fake, I do have an answer: A real hashtag is a feature of a site where something starting with # will turn into a link you can click that lets you search through messages that use the same tag. This site not do this, therefore it's a fake hashtag. But okay, maybe you can just say a hashtag is any bit of text that can be searched like a hashtag. However if you paste #LegalIdentityIsSuperficial into google the only results are from this very page. Therefore it's also completely pointless as a search term and therefore also a fake hashtag. QED. :P
