Impermanent selves

"Instead, there is a succession or alternation of impermanent selves, each in command part of the time, each with its own needs and desires during the time it is in command, but having--at least some of them--strong preferences about what is done during the period that another one is in command."

-Thomas Schelling, Ethics, Law, and the Exercise of Self-Command
