    Just a Thought!

    I felt this was a very thought provoking quote

    "If I did not have a name, how could I identify myself? If I had no name, who would I be?"

    Ever thought about it .. if not.. How about rite now? ... http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/hehe.gif

    *That hope always triumphs over experience.
    *That laughter is the only cure for grief.
    *And I believe that love is stronger than death.

    hmmm.......
    hmm.....

    My brother is a Systems Analyst....and I was a programmer and systems engineer in a software company.......One ramzan day after sehri we sat down and came up with a coding system for all the ppl on earth, and all codes to be unique. They gave you country ,date of birth, an association with your father aaaaannd values to identfy yurself...(AND a check digit on the end).

    so if you didnt have a name.....you would most probably be called something like

    PKRHG78S273GD67H-8 (I cant remember the length)

    or something like that......we figured that this would work for a couple hundred years but then fail due to the association with father thingie (tree propagation or what ever).....(with cloning it would fail anyway).....

    hehe......freakyyyyy!!! isnt it......

    I guess we had too must time on our hands...

    Does that answer yur question?? )

      hmmmmmmmmmmm......

      what makes you think that a certain "name" gives you 100% authencity, all it does is narrow down the common factor. You would still be able to identify yourself as human (maybe)

      and even you were never granted a "name", your psyche will take hardly any effort in establishing its own unique id.

        What makes yur NIC number unique?
        What makes your drivers lic number unique?
        they all narrow down to common factors..but still they are unique....
        It was just a coding for the whole population of the world.....How hard is that.....I mean you gave every person an IP...still it would work for many many ppl...giving them unique identities......and if you consider IPv4 well you have almost unlimited names (almost )......
        SO there can be many simple and authentic naming conventions.....
        I used to think.....Boss's daughters name was Maryyam....and my neice's name is Maryyam.....
        One day I say "I baught a stuffed toy for maryyam and gave it to maryyam"

        could complicate matters dont you think...I could loose my job even hehe.....and wait till i put my ex-classmate maryyam into it

            Who named Adam? God did. I don't think we could survive without names. Without names we will be "confuse sorry human beings".

                  Mystery Girl i think i summed to up for you, but you just didn't catch my drift.

                  i just wanted to rephrase what The Watcher sir said, that without names we will be " confuse sorry human beings", actually it is that we will be "more confused sorry human beings" than we already are

                  Bottom line is if we didnt have "names" as the sole means of identification, some alternative will certainly develop, which will serve as a indicator of your uniqueness.
