Inside My Head

Who is the me inside my head?
Who understood those books I read?
Who wanted to say all the things I said?
My mind – or so I’m persuaded!

But what is the thing that is my mind?
Is it neurones and synapses intertwined?
Or is it something of a different kind?
Machine or spirit – or both combined?

Could a machine be this self-aware?
Would a spirit have chosen what I wear?
Would a mere computer actually care,
Whether or not it was really there?
