    I like to think you are your consciousness. What you experience and how you interpret everything and how you can just tell you're conscious makes you yourself.

    It’s important when talking about Henrietta Lax and personhood to address how she was exploited by medicine as a black woman. Pretty though her immortality and contributions to science might be.
