    on a much grainier level than the individual - within each individual are fractional reactions that don't quite rise to the level of causing an overt response, but averaged over millions, those fractional reactions produce high-level consequences.  We can no more be rid of labels than we can be rid of language, and we can no more be rid of identity than of symbolic thinking.  There are traps in human consciousness, and part of our evolution is discovering and defusing them before (or, sadly, after) we fall into them.
