I Have No Possessions

If you came to my house, you’d probably say otherwise.
If you go to the store and buy a CD, you own it, right?

If years later you move and throw it away, who owns it then?

OK, let’s say it’s your favorite CD. You’ll never part with it. Even if you lose your job, home, and family, you’re keeping that CD until the day you die.

Who owns it then?

I won’t try to answer the larger question posed here, which is, “What does it mean if nobody owns anything?

It seems to me that what matters so much more than what you own is, what have you done?

This levels the playing field for all of us. There’s no entry barrier to doing something meaningful today.
