You could right away add to the "me" pile any cells, living or dead, that have or had DNA in them.  Obvious.

Does that include protists? Why them and not bacteria? DNA viruses?

Haha I should have said "my DNA", not just any DNA.  Nice catch.

Personally, I'm going to set the arbitrary cutoff timer to whenever the something the circulatory system, respiratory system, etc., has gone through one cycle of taking in, chewing up, and spitting out. The rest is what my heuristics tell me is structural.

So given that completely arbitrary rule, what other inputs need to be taken into account?

BTW, I'll be honest, I've got the social anxiety and bipolar, so I frequently hit and run with my questions, regret dropping them, and blame my inability to learn for not changing.

However, that's why I'm looking for evidence of what Steve frequently talks about, re: hours spent playing chess to become a master varies from person to person, but almost all can still become masters.

If you've got links to specific journal articles on that subject, please see my new post.

What does chess have to do with the mass of the body? And why are you asking the same question in different threads?
