i do this so that i can see the physical connection between all things. i do it often because 1. i can analyse how things connect, and 2. because i can challange my patiences and understanding of the waters im in, the fish im trying to catch, and what i will need to use to catch it and why.

Excellent post. You do realize I have to pick at it though.
The first thing I noticed, you have more to say about you mentally then anything else.
In your description of you physically, you only brush up on the very thing I've said, your physical shape in the here and now. Not before and not after. You hadn't described that particular aspect of YOU or how it fully applies to the being of YOU. You however did, in a few words state everything and nothing in a physical aspect, but lacked any actual connection of how that aspect truelly define's you physically.
In the mental description of you, I found it rather interesting on how you state that you try and study how everything is connected in a way. You show the example of fishing
How thing's are seemingly connected physically in this aspect is easy to understand. Everything in nature has evolved to serve a certain niche, including the human species, whether we realize or fully understand that niche. The connection's your showing are of this scale, and this scale only.
Another aspect of your definition, you've seemingly overcome an anger/bipolar issue, but you have shown a slight outburst, although temporarily. The slight, nearly insignificant outburst might have meant nothing, but if this is a normal occurance, then you haven't fully overcome the problem. Nothing to get ashamed of or angry about. I get angry alot, I won't goto anger managment though because sometime's an emotional outburst is a hell of alot better then bottling it all in. I also openly cry, although not as much as I used too when I was a kid. I'm not ashamed in admitting that I sometime's cry or get depressed. My mom also has bipolar disorder, so far no ammount of medication has helped her, but she also mix's medication's and mix's those all up in alchohol.
My whole point of asking you to do this definition experiment was to learn from you, what you think the definition of you is and what it entails. And as I thought, and as it is with just about anyone you'll come in contact with, that definition consisted mostly of the mental aspect. All the while, before this definition, you were trying to show me how the being of you existed before birth and after death. But when it all boiled down to a clear cut definition, which you self analysed that definition, none of those previous aspect's were ever defined as being you or how those connection's are what define you.

Let's try it again. Forget string theory for a minute. Just assume the theory I proposed is discovered to be true, and that this fundamental 'sumthing' only retains 'indivuality' for indeterminate length's of time, which after it goes under a state of change becoming an entirely different 'something'. Just as there are many different particles and flavors of quarks, there could also be many different flavors, each being different from one another in some way, as particles are different from one another. So, in the reality of my theory, none of the individual fundamental something's actually retain any sense of indivuality due to it's change into a different form of fundamental something. This indeterminate length of time could be mere femtoseconds, minutes, days, year's, thousand's of years, million's of years, billion's of year's, or even trillion's of year's. The problem is though, just as we have the heisenberg uncertainty principle, dealing with particals, a similar principal also exist's for ths fundamental something in such a fashion that we cannot predict when that something at any particular point in time, will change.
