You and they are just brains.

Everything is acted on by everything else, completely interlocked and interdependent. Every behavior is dependent on Circumstance. Pick up an object and let it go, it falls to the earth. That is its behavior. Wind a clock, and it ticks and turns the hands on its face. That is its behavior. Brains have specific behaviors, and specific brains have unique behaviors. The brain that thinks it is "you", the thing that thinks there's a "you" in there, separate from itself, has a specific behavior. It is simply a reaction to circumstance, just like everything else.

 Cut yourself some slack. You can only do exactly what you do. Cut other people some slack. They can only behave how the brain behaves. You and they are just brains.
