Mrs Didge and I once attended a workshop in which everybody, seated in a circle, had to say a few things about who we were. The air was thick with bulldust and by the time it got around to me I just said, "My name is Didgeri Doo and I'm nobody at all." The facilitator was horrified and said, "We're going to have to work on your self esteem" At which point Mrs Didge jumped in and said, "You leave his self esteem alone. If he gets any more, I'm leaving home."

So, who am I? Beats hell out of me. I'm a sentient individual, a blob of consciousness lost in a sea of consciousness, who has spent almost eight decades wondering who the hell I am and not finding an answer.

But thanks for asking the question. Maybe somebody will solve the problem for me.

Thanks for sharing your thought. But I just want to share this to you, I ask a man, asking "Who is he?" then he answered me that he is an "angel." According to him he is a man created by the image and likeness of God.

So, if there is another intelligence out there in the Universe, that does not look like us, their creator was another god?

“Different sorts of survival machine appear very varied on the outside and in their internal organs. An octopus is nothing like a mouse, and both are quite different from an oak tree. Yet in their fundamental chemistry they are rather uniform, and, in particular, the replicators that they bear, the genes, are basically the same kind of molecule in all of us—from bacteria to elephants. We are all survival machines for the same kind of replicator—molecules called DNA— but there are many different ways of making a living in the world, and the replicators have built a vast range of machines to exploit them. A monkey is a machine that preserves genes up trees, a fish is a machine that preserves genes in the water; there is even a small worm that preserves genes in German beer mats. DNA works in mysterious ways.” -Richard Dawkins "The Selfish Gene"

That is all true, but does not add one jot to the argument. Be also clear that genes are not just different versions of the same thing, they really are not. DNA is, of course

I am many things. 

There are many complexities that make up 'who' I am as an idividual, a mother, a wife, a grandmother, a woman, a sister, a daughter, a member of society, a teacher, a confident, a lover, a friend, a consumer, a contributer  ... Etc etc etc.

Tibetan book of Living and Dying, Quote: - “Two people have been living in you all of your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to.” He refers to this hidden spiritual being as our wise guide.
