Maybe. But a character can change - by love.
"Fame and fortunehow empty they can beBut when I hold you in my armsThat's heaven to meWho cares for fame and fortuneThey're only passing thingsBut the touch of your lips on mineMakes me feel like a king"Who was that king?
There's only one king - Elvis!
Natura facit saltus said Brecht on his play "The Good Person of Szechwan", but that was on misfortune, rather than fortune. Also misfortune is actually revealingThe most recent psychology says about the "self" that there is no such thing as the true character or a self, but there are only states and interfaces of our I.I agree very much that this level of interfaces exists, but the interfaces represent also different columns which are longign for a key brick. And the I is like an organ of our self. The identity and the interfaces are only the exoskeleton of the I.What a luck that love and lips exist, especially when there is no key brick.
