Abstract: 

A functional analysis of the Identity and self awareness is conducted by means of the relational frame theory. The Self is defined as an equivalence class including percepting Self as different from the context (difference, sincronic identity) and including percepting Self as constant along the time (sameness). We hypothesize a derived functional relation (combinatorial) between difference and sameness: therefore transformations applied on the first are reflected on the other one.
