The Blurred Reality of Humanity

The subtitle of the article: "Do we really even exist? Fooling ourselves into thinking we do is the one thing that makes us who we are"

Maybe that's editors' humor.

Julian Baggini's last two sentences: "But it does not therefore show that this 'I' is just an illusion. There is what I call an Ego Trick, but it is not that the self doesn't exist, only that it is not what we generally assume it to be."

Interpretation: The editor(s) of The Independent didn't finish the article, or didn't pay careful attention to what they read. Baggini should request a right to veto the titles and subtitles chosen by editors for his pieces.
