A friend of mine recently said “Why are you so self-aware?” I am so glad that she asked because that is exactly the question I am asking myself too.
I can’t help but see this trend as a good thing. It’s human nature to want to be noticed.
Its the same reason that I find it interesting that I tend to be self-aware when I am in public, even when I know the situation is bad or embarrassing, when I can see myself in the situation. My friend asked me about it and I said “Why? Because I am self-aware?” Because I am so glad she asked.
No, it’s not because we’re self-aware. If anything, it’s because we’re more self-aware than we realize. We realize it’s bad, embarrassing, and ridiculous to be self-aware, but we do it anyway. We do it because it’s true. If we weren’t this self-aware, it wouldn’t be like this.
The difference between being self-aware and being aware is actually just about perspective. When you’re aware of something, you can also see what it looks like, how it feels, and what it is, but when you’re self-aware you see it for what it is. Self-awareness is a very, very rare thing, I would think.

In the trailer for disguise santa, we see a very, very different version of Colt Vahn, and it looks remarkably like his old self. Because Colt is trying to kill all the Visionaries in a very specific way, he’s using the same powers to create this new version of himself. What this means is that Colt now has the power (and the mind-set of the Visionaries) to create his own reality.
This is a bit of a meta-thought, because for the most part, we don’t think our minds are that much different from our bodies. When we’re self-aware, we notice this and realize that what we think, feel, and do is very much the same as what our bodies are experiencing. It is this awareness that allows us to go outside of the usual patterns of our thoughts, feelings, and actions to act as we see fit.
I’ve got a few more ideas for Colt’s future, which could be a lot of fun. For example, I’ve been thinking that if he can steal the Visionaries’ money, he could use that to create a new reality in his own mind. This idea could be very interesting, but it would probably require Colt to get caught in the first place.
