When the Declaration of Independence was signed on the 4th of July 1776, there was no pre-existing evidence of independence.
The declaration was an act of conception – it created the independence between Great Britain and the colonies.
In this same way, declaring who you are is not necessarily the affirming of a pre-existing and evidenced reality of who you are.
A powerful declaration can be made in the total absence of evidence. To declare can produce something from nothing.
A declaration requires no proof for it is the active invocation of Being.
