Kate, if I may intervene,
At least for me there is a ' me'.
The ' me ' I am talking about is and has been conditioned by past
environmental input ( whatever that might be and taken in its broadest
sense) and will be cascaded forward only due to those past ( and
present) input and of how I responded to it; although I think that
even future, yet to come reality environmental inputs do already
exercise influence on the ' me' in the present.
The ' me' responded in an individual way to changes, because there
is no other ' me ' like me, not genetical nor memetical.
Seen from the inside out, I do and I did put the ink in the inkpot in
the way I responded to changes !
