Alexander didn't feel attached to his name. He knew it well enough, so did his friends. So did the government, who seemed a great deal more interested in keeping it straight than he did. His wallet's contents--three university id cards, two library cards, a driver's licence, an undeclared quantity of video rental store membership cards, two Canada health cards (both the old blundered version and the new improved photo card), a SIN card, an ATM bank card, a Certificate of Canadian citizenship, and a Certificate of birth--all insisted that his mind, his body, his vocation and his leisure time belonged verifiably to one person. Something Alexander Oneperson, who went by his second name, though only his friends knew that. He had been born Alexander, had, in every aspect (spiritus et corpus, vacuus et laborare) and at all ages (despite the disparity between him and him on his 1982 un- updated citizenship photo) remained Alexander, and would remain so until his death. After his death, he could be divided up again according to the "Human Tissue Gift Act", which allowed him to make an "anatomical gift, if medically acceptable, to take effect upon Undersigned's death" of his various body parts. For a time he had anguished over how to make a mental gift of his mind.
