the many and no one
History adds that before or after dying he [the actor] found himself in the
presence of God and told Him: "I who have been so many men in vain want
to be one and myself." The voice of the Lord answered from a
whirlwind: "Neither am I anyone; I have dreamt the world as you dreamt
your work...and among the forms in my dream are you, who
like myself are many and no one."
From "Everything and Nothing," by Jorge Luis Borges (translated by James E. Irby)
