Have you considered this with some depth of understanding?
What is a “person” ?
Are you just a “person”,
or are you much, much
more than that limited persona?
An entire psychology has been developed
and promulgated over a very long time,
and we have fallen under its spell, believing

of electrochemical reactions and synaptic
What a limited and limiting view!
There is much more to the reality of being
than the little, but ensnaring cogitations of limited mind.
Consciousness precedes all of this.
You can discover this for yourself experientially.
Mastery of Self gets beyond this game of illusion.
