It sure takes all kinds to make the whole, so as many individuals as there are is how many realities there are of what the whole is. We can certainly grasp our own identity because we have existence amid our surroundings, so no matter how far one is on the ladder of complexity, our own form separates us from what is not us...but we can connect to other things and share a greater piece of existence than just being 'individual'...we can be like something else...less than before...even more than before...a little shake-up of our niche, just the same.
And there's nothing like a little upheaval in the norm to rattle potential, if not to improve one's lot, then at least to see what kind of alteration occurs. That's the basic premise to existence, isn't it? 'What happens when this happens?'
We not only can know what the norm is for things, but also know what happens when alterations occur and see exactly what is different and what the benefits and detriments are against the norm. So, I commend anyone who has a definition of who they are in life because it means they can have purpose in promoting their kind toward a greater continuance of existence, which utilizes the surroundings in mutually-beneficial ways instead of having a detriment in one or the other.
I guess it all comes down to how much can one handle in their quest for fulfillment in their existence. To be kinda happy is all we're after, so being serious or playing games is all a matter of choice when the time is right or allows for such choices. Now then...who else feels like going for a wander through a haunted house where we can get the heck scared out of us and know where the exit is? I promise to freak out the most haha.
