In fact my goal was to get rid of mathematical definitions of identity and move to instrumental definition. That is the definition of identity depends of the goal I am solving and identity itself is not a thing that actually exists but a supportive term. That is why we have problems this it.

Basically, there is two types of question where we need notion of "identity":

1) What I will experience in the next moment? (first-eye view) 2) Is it the same person? (third-eye view)
