You said you would become part of an organism, and thats being eaten.

If you are part of a community there is still a you.
A self if you will.

Ah, it seems to have disappeared.  If it was your artwork and you do commissions, could you let me know?

A community is an organism made up of individuals. It's not about being eaten, it's about choosing to interact with others

Its your soul, the core of your astral form.
Its YOU, in your purest form.
Spirit, soul, self etc.
Its the tongue spoken in my weird daydreams.

Well I don't know if i even believe in the soul, its not something that really looms large in my belief structure but I am confused about why you think someone involved in a community wouldn't have one?
