A fictional account of how a speculative hypothesis about how to eliminate the "we/they" distinction is implemented by rearing children (during early critical years) in "aggregates in flux" instead of in kinship-based families: In "aggregates in flux," the individual members would be constantly varying (and unrelated, genetically). The only invariant would be that they were all human.
