1 organism, or millions??

I was just thinking, considering I am made up of millions (billions?) of cells, am I a single organism, or a network, kind of like I suppose a collaboration of millions?

Is each one of my cells an organism in its own right? Are my sperm each their own organism, or are they me??

Since the cells in your body could not survive without being a part of the whole, that is what makes you a multicellular organism and not a colony of single-celled organisms.
