I as a whole and not only in itself

Biologically speaking, why I'm not a cell in my brain, or just heart, I'm me as a whole. How lucky was I to be myself as a whole, not just another cell inside my body?

I am not sure what biological or medical phenomenon you are describing here. Please PM me a reference describing the idea and I will reopen. Otherwise it will likely degenerate into philosophical musings
