tell one another:

who would you be?
if you were a life form other than human, what might it be?
if you were a (non-organic) structure, what might that be?
(for example, if you were an institution what might that be?)

2) what is your name and preferred pronoun?
(tell each other all the pronouns you’ve ever heard of)
