Consider that if identity is a function of the will, as I maintain, and if  
such programs as Fritz may be said to have will, then during the game  
Fritz-White's identity is quite different from Fritz-Black's. Each of the  
two instances of Fritz has, at every step, a unique will and therefore a  
unique identity.
