dc.description.abstract I am looking at the notion of contingency and how random events construct the self at any given time. The concept of the contingent self is centered on the amalgamation of experiences that one undergoes throughout one’s life. Each experience, layered upon other experiences, and the choices and outcomes that come about as a result of such experience make us human. It was a fragment attributed to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus that started me down this path of thinking. In the fragment Heraclitus states: “We both step and do not step in the same rivers. We are and are not.” By turning not only to philosophy but also to scientific theory, I look to the universe as a whole and how its constantly changing states mirror the human condition.
