We are trained. We are asked questions, we have to sing, dance, be photogenic and tell who we love and who we want to be when we grow up. The title of Zbigniew Liber's work can be paraphrased to the sentence: 'How children are trained'. Like a sponge in the first years, we absorb everything around us, becoming a copy of our parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts. We are made out of Lego blocks of behavior and memories, and like the DNA code with the appropriate change, we can be a diamond or a onion. After time, we know the right answers and learn good punchlines faster and faster. We assume roles and value systems, until the moment when we look at ourselves from years ago and find out that we are not responsible for anything alone. I built it all by myself, a sentence that is never true.
