If you insist on being utterly accurate in this tangential issue, then yes, only about ~90% of our atoms change in ~7 years (feel free to search for the exactly precisely etc accurate values if you wish).

This biological fact more than proves my point regarding this nature of living systems in relation to an overthought greek definition-seeking of the concept "the same".

And in relation to thought and consciousness - tell me, Christopher, is your mental world - your thoughts, feelings and aspirations - the same as 7 years ago? As 1 year ago?
