d) If I am ignored, I might not exist.

But with my senses activated, I extend out as far as I can see and hear and sense. It comes into me and makes up me, along with the gurglings of the intestines and brains alike and their products.

That includes the social mirrors for comparison. That’s why I communicate at all; to get feedback to confirm:
a) Yes, I’m really here
b) Is my opinion shared? If so I get the pleasant feeling of certainty, which is addictive.
c) If my opinion is argued with, that means I am here, as I am worth combatting, and a sword has to hit *something* solid, even if it’s words, therefore I am really here.
d) If I am ignored, I might not exist.
