Humanity was on the verge of discovering a great mystery in a distant world: soulmates. These were souls connected through the power of love and destiny, who searched for each other and found each other in every lifetime.

John had been searching for his soulmate for years but had not found them. One day, he decided to go to a café and try to relax with a cup of coffee.

Sitting down, he noticed a woman at the table next to him. She was reading a book and sipping on her coffee.

After hesitation, John mustered up the courage to strike up a conversation.

"Excuse me, do you observe if I ask what you're reading?" he asked.

The woman looked up and smiled. "Not at all. It's a book about quantum mechanics. I find it fascinating," she replied.

John was taken aback. He had always been interested in science and technology, and he had never met someone who shared that same passion.

"Really? I've always been interested in that too. Do you mind if I join you?" he asked.

The woman gestured for him to sit down. "Not at all. I could use some company," she said.

As they talked, John felt he had finally found someone who understood him. They shared their thoughts on everything from technology to philosophy, and John couldn't believe how easy it was to talk to her.

After a while, the woman looked at him and smiled. "You know, I feel like we have a connection. Like we were meant to meet," she said.

John felt his heart skip a beat. Could she be his soulmate?

"I feel the same way. Do you believe in soulmates?" he asked.

The woman nodded. "Absolutely. I think there's someone out there for everyone. It's just a matter of finding them," she replied.

John felt a surge of hope. Maybe he had finally found his soulmate.

"Can I ask you something? What's your identifier?" he asked, referring to the unique identifier assigned to each person.

The woman hesitated for a moment before replying. "I don't have one. I determined long ago that I didn't want to be defined by a number. I want to be known for who I am, not who I'm supposed to be with," she said.

John was surprised but also impressed. He had never met someone who had rejected the system so ultimately.

"That's admirable. I wish I could be like that," he said.

The woman smiled. "You can be. It's never too late to decide who you want to be," she replied.

As they said their goodbyes, John couldn't shake the feeling that he had just met someone special. Maybe she was his soulmate, or perhaps she was just a reminder that there was more to life than finding a number. Either way, he knew he was grateful for their shared conversation.

Years passed, and people began to search for their soulmates with almost religious devotion. Each person was assigned a unique identifier linked to their soulmate's identifier, and they were encouraged to use advanced technology to find their perfect match. The search became all-consuming, and people began to neglect their other responsibilities in their quest for love.

As time passed, the pressure to find a soulmate grew more intense. People began to feel incomplete without their other half, and some even took extreme measures to find them. Scientists, too, became obsessed with the idea of soulmates and began experimenting with ways to create a connection between two people artificially.

But as the world became consumed by the search for soulmates, something strange began to happen. People began to lose their individuality and their identities intertwined with their soulmates. They began to lose their sense of self, and their lives revolved entirely around their partner.

Ultimately, it became clear that the true meaning of soulmates was not to lose oneself in another but to find someone to help them become their best selves. People started forming more profound, meaningful connections as the world realized this. They learned to appreciate each other's differences and love each other for who they were.
