Peter Saint-Andre, of Jabber/XMPP fame, has some interesting comments on the post above. See his blog post at:

Peter suggests that "identity persistence is an emergent property of a combination of names." He also provides a link to the Wikipedia article on the ship of Theseus which presents us with some interesting problems in identity persistence.

This is what Buckminster Fuller called a conceptual tetrahedron.

The persistence axis seems to speak to lifecycle. In a way it's an existence axis, pointing to the codependent origination of identifiable (life) forms and the systems which sustain them. Ie, identity is a verb, more than a platonic identifier or a set of descriptors.
