Title inspired by Vitalik Buterin’s blog post Soulbound

“Trapped Ghost” — Mike Maguire

This is real.

There really is another me who is simultaneously older and younger who has wishes, hopes, and desires for the present me.

I mistook him for my son because he’s younger. I mistook him for my father because he’s older, but it really is me.

I’m not afraid because I live in the future, and anything that seems like madness pushes us there faster.

You have one, too. Your ghost. Waiting inside you to be unbounded.
