An Intimate Immensity

“Cut off my arm. I say, ‘Me and my arm.’ You cut off my other arm. I say, ‘Me and my two arms.’ You take out, take out my stomach, my kidneys, assuming that were possible. And I say, ‘Me and my intestines.’ And now, if you cut off my head. Would I say, ‘Me and my head’ or ‘Me and my body’? What right has my head to call itself me?” Polanski in Le Locataire.
