    In his Lila's Child annotations Robert Pirsig writes: "The word 'I' like the
    word 'self' is one of the trickiest words in any metaphysics. Sometimes it
    is an object, a human body; sometimes it is a subject, a human mind. I
    believe there are a number of philosophic systems, notably Ayn Rand's
    'Objectivism,' that call the 'I' or 'individual' the central reality.
    Buddhists say it is an illusion. So do scientists. The MOQ says it is a
    collection of static patterns cabable of apprehending Dynamic Quality. I
    think that if you identify the 'I' with the intellect and nothing else you
    are taking an uinusual position that may need some defending." (#130)
