Hi Jonathan,

I think you do not see the real question, which can be formulated (using your
analogy) by :

Why (me as) Russell Standish is Russell Standish rather Jonathan Colvin ? I
(as RS) could have been you (JC)... but it's a fact that I'm not, but the
question is why I'm not, why am I me rather than you ? What "force" decide
for me to be me ? :)
