Do you think identity is required if there is no communication?We all have a name and along with it a lot of other identities. Though the name of two persons may be common, in that case, the other identities such as the surname or date of birth come into our aid to differentiate between the two. We have a lot of identity cards too that helps to distinguish each one accurately. We have identity cards for various purposes. One for financial things, one for government schemes and so on. Each has its own purpose and in some cases, you may need to give the details of all your identity cards. See, only humans have the prerogative to name things and they have named each thing to help them identify it. Other species cannot name their fellows and identify each other with the help of their senses. Neither they have identity cards nor do they make mistake to identify each other. But why we really need an identity? The sole purpose is just to differentiate between the two but if there is no communication among us do we really need a different name or identity card for that? In the case of devices, they all have a common name and there is no need to differentiate them. The concept of identity or addresses of the devices arises only if they communicate between them. Otherwise, they all belong to a common group. Is the same thing applies to us? If we do not communicate with each other in any way do we still require to be identified?
