Borders and boundaries

The formation of structure entails borders and boundaries. Structure is fueled by agreement and acceptance. When agreement and acceptance exist, there is a natural dichotomy between those who participate and those who do not.

Traits/issues like identity, sovereignty, race, gender, economic philosophy, etc. entail borders and boundaries in association with the structures they create.

Borders and boundaries melt through interaction. They harden through identity. Thus, in a very real sense, interaction destroys identity...structure, which are one and the same. Identity is a form of structure...perhaps the most important form of structure for humans.
