"Our physical quirks, our mistakes, the inflection in our name, our proclivities and our tendencies, they all get rolled into a singular collection of traits that define who we are. And that collection is what people see first and foremost when they receive our personalities. Without that identity, all anyone has to judge a person on is their words via the prism of objective reality. It only cares whether our views on organic chemistry or foreign policy are relevant. It separates the world of ideas from the filthy meatspace we are bound by."
