It is as good a thing to talk about as anything. If you have something better to do then good for you, see you later.

Other: Cosmologically, I'm not an individual. Biochemically/genetically, my individuality is a permutation of everything else. Culturally, I abstract my identity from social constructs and assume a role in civilization.

"Individuality is only possible if it unfolds from wholeness."

We're vibratory formations passing through everything else. A complex community of gut flora exist within you, is a micro-organism an individual? See, it's relative to where you are in the motion of everything. Being present is an information bias. Being an individual is an interpretation of the present information.

I'm sure many will join and it will be a meaningful discussion. I was referring to your legendary disdain for retarded questions. ;)

Fuck.... Existential crisis just hit me like a flying brick wall falling as debris during superhero battles.. This question is too deep.

It's a simple question but it has deep potential.

It's called nuance, and existential context. You are an individual and you're not an individual. That which is deep is simultaneously shallow, it's a matter of perspective.

I never got this bankrupt thing. Do you think people need income only if they're bankrupt?

If this is you, then you must be bankrupt mentally, which your posts also suggest.
