Age poll

I was thinking of trying to provide precise definitions for what counted as a memory and what counted as consistent and what counted as a friend and what counted as self-concept. That would be an exercise in loopholes and definitional arguments. Please answer as you understand the terms, and if you want to provide caveats in the comments section, please do so.

Stories about early memories, friendships, and sense of self are, of course, also welcome.

If you don't remember anything, have no friends, and don't know who you are, I'd like to hear about that, too, but I think we can take the joke version of that as done and move on.
