This chapter examines the differences between self-identification and the self/other differentiation. It suggests that the rotation and simulation of self/other differentiation rely on two distinct neural networks for attributing and understanding, respectively. However, they cannot be considered as completely separate because they both contribute to the same function: the self/other differentiation. This chapter argues that the self/other differentiation is the gateway to social communication, because communication between two selves requires that they both understand each other and remain distinct from one another.

Keywords:   self-identification, self differentiation, others, neural networks, social communication
