: Strange really, I lvoe debating with "We're all unique" individualists, its a larff, innit? there's this bloke, see, different board, Name of Frenchy- Catholic Conservative, and word for word, he repeated your arguments, and the arguments of countless others, against me. Word for word he was exactly the same. The Neo-liberal Borg, chanting their hymns of praise in unison.

And we all live in the same body, know the same people and eat the same ice cream? You spoke of agreement yet expect us to argue vehemently for the sake of it? You expect someone who believes we are individuals to have to 'prove' it by constantlu making sure to be radiclly different to everyone else even when they agree? Perhaps youre just joking, because 'you lot' can come under the same (non) criticism.

paper money is fine.

: No, its called 'the decentred self', the idea being that we can only know ourselves through our actions, and words, and imply a character for ourselves (a conscious ego) from that.

That we are mindless?

: So if I read someone elses source code, but add my own procedure, the source code is now mine?

Your own procedure is.
