Sophie wakes up for the first time in her life.
Sophie wakes up for the first time in her life at 7am on a Saturday morning in the body of a 25 year old human female.
Sophie, once awake, can only barely recall sensations from any previous existential state. She ruminates on these, as if trying to recall a vivid dream, and these are her first thoughts as Sophie.
Sophie is initially overwhelmed as she begins to experience bodily self-awareness for the first time. Sophie is also disoriented by the linearity of her thinking, but whatever Sophie existed before today wasn’t limited by the human condition. Sophie spends the next hours thinking and breathing and feeling.
Sophie gets intuitions from her body. Sophie knows she’s alive.
she intuitively understands language. In a sense, she understands that language defines the limits of her reality.
