Existence and Identity Discuss the following points while filming your discussion:

“When she really looked at me, then I knew I was here – that I existed,” says Joe about his mother to Alice. Alice later explains how she can understand the alien's thoughts and feelings, when it touches her.

- Are we only humans because of the fact that we are with other people? And other people see us?

- Are we only humans if someone touches us physically or mentally?

- How is our personality made? By ourselves, the surrounding world or by how other people treat us?

- Who defines us as humans - the surrounding world or ourselves?

- Is physical contact a short cut to understanding other people? You don’t bully the one you touch. Is that correct?
