What is the likelihood that you and I are identical physically—with the same set of skills and the level of capability? Although the number above is accurate and statistically precise, we can see a similar indication of uniqueness by building a model that computes how many people have lived on this planet since the beginning of human time.
You can study the formula we used in the appendix of this book. The estimated number is staggering: 68 billion total humans may have lived and died on this planet. Each one of us is unique, both in the nature of Who we are and also What we are.
It is this very uniqueness both in physical and spiritual nature that causes us to have the same universal call; the call to be our unique selves and to find our unique place in the lineage of Man and in the habitation of Earth. We all have the questions alive within us: Who am I? What am I? Why am I here? We each have an unremitting drive to make a worthwhile contribution. It is part of our creature survival mechanism. It is part of our spiritual urge that makes us all humans. We also each have a unique mixture of core spiritual energies to contribute. These are what make up our Contributor Type.
We now can provide significant evidence that helps each of us characterize and even quantify Who we are (our unique Real Core Values Self) and What we are (our physical attributes, capabilities, talents, and skills).
This information about Who we are and What we are join together to provide clear guidance about the question, Why am I here?
Who I am is a unique recipe of core values capacities that work together to cause my presence in society to be unique and to be useful.
What I am provides the skills and capabilities to express, or to deliver who I am to society. We include in the What I am composite the adapted personality or learned behavior patterns. Read more about this in our Human Operating System Manual and in my book, Choices.
