I feel that people place

I feel that people place such an importance on the i-function because it is our self awareness and consciousness. Unlike passionate crime, premeditated crime is something people think about and they are aware of their actions when committing the crime. For me, the i-function is one of the things that makes us who we are. To know that we are aware of ourselves makes us know that we are alive and that we have a purpose in life. I don't think that life would be worth living if we did not have an i-function because we would not be aware of any of our actions or thoughts. We say that there are so many things that we can do without it, but I don't think they would have been worth doing if I was not aware of it after and was able to reflect back on it. Take me writing this paragraph for example. My thoughts are flowing out as I write and maybe my i-function does not know what I'm typing a that moment, but after reading back through my paragraph, my i-function is able to see what i was thinking and my thoughts become significant because I am finally aware of them.
