My submission for "the Split shattered self contest". I have Asperger's Syndome and ADD that i often struggle with in form of lag of concentration, distraction, and anxiety, etc. Here's a little discription of my peice:
Some time ago I had a very strange dream; I dreamt that I was in an alternate reality / near future where it was not unusual that people bought electronic copies of vital organs for various reasons. I had ordered a copy of my brain, with the ulterior motive that I wanted to be without my Asperger's Syndrome. But when I woke up after the surgery I felt just as distracted and perplexed as I so often felt with my old brain. I went to see myself in the mirror and looked at my new brain which shines out through a glass window on the side of my head. Then comes a doctor into my room, and I ask him if they didn't remove the Asperger from my new brain, to which he replies "no, you never requested that. You've got a complete electronic copy of your bio-brain."
The dream was so clear to me when I woke up that I decided I just had to draw it. I suppose the final question in my dream would be whether I would still be me with another brain even though it was a copy? And would I still be me if I havn't had Asperger's?
