There is an idea of a Matthew Eng, some kind of abstraction from my daily grind as a digital historian of naval history, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold face with my musings on this blog and you can like my posts and feel the tap of keys on your keyboard touching your hand as you share it with your friends and maybe you can even sense that we have thoughts and ideas probably comparable: I simply am not here.
