Viewing oneself

Speaking of looking at the world from a perspective away from it, taking a distance, how would it be if one is to look at one's own life as if one is viewing some biographical movie about a certain person... only this person is you!

Prior to photography and all that related technology, the only existing possibility of viewing oneself (though not distantly or detachedly) was the mirror.  It is like one of those exercises which used to freak out some of the teachers when I asked them to do: give a funeral oration of themselves!

I wonder what would be going on in the mind of the apostles as they view this picture of the Last supper, with people other than themselves!
