Have We Met?

It is enough that you have casually referred to one of my trademark characteristics to say that I have materialized, however faintly, within your cognitive realm.
And if you already existed within mine then we know something of each other.
But wasn’t that the case years ago, when our animae first briefly crossed paths?
All we actually know of each other is a product of a giant simulacra. Except that first glance; it was real, I think.
