Abstract

 

“City life and‭ ‬rapid growth of urbanization has an impact on people and how we interact with one another‭ ‬–‭ ‬our behavior‭, ‬personality‭, ‬values and relationships‭. ‬

Being exposed to elevated complexities of the modern city life creates new‭ ‬social bonds and new attitudes toward others‭, ‬and altering fundamental notions of being and self‭.  ‬

Abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality and existence reveals hallucinations‭, ‬delusions and social dysfunction‭,‬‭ ‬which triggers‭ ‬identity disorders‭ ‬in which a person displays multiple distinct identities and alter egos‭. ‬When‭ ‬the true self knowledge is attained the illusory personas are realized‭, ‬and having recognized a sub personality‭, ‬one suddenly feels naked and defenseless‭, ‬as if his armor had dissolved‭. The personal delusion of self can have no real knowledge of truth‭, ‬because it is not true‭, ‬but delusive‭. ‬That was the thought process that inspired‭ ‬Resurrection des Mannequins‭.‬”
