How does one identify oneself with property? What is a self but an imaginary figure that owns a body? When the expression, "My person" is uttered, the floodgates open. It is a subtle expression introducing ownership. This is a common linguistic problem that can be blamed for all manner of
possession. A linguistic problem it remains, for existence is prior to language. Language is a way to communicate to the other free beings in this world. At it's inception, language reaches toward others. But we are not language, we create language to communicate to others. Language could have only been created as an expression of thought, an expression of empathy.
