English term or phrase:"Switching 'n' stitching"
Need help for the hereabove title
...It is postulated that in order to cope with the demands of our society, people must be capable of switching between identities actively and quickly while stitching these different identities in place..
Explanation: I chose a term from the telecommunication domain (commutation) since the text seems to be about today's society (fast life, huge amounts fo data, people turning into robots...). Good luck!
Explanation: if you want to keep the "two seperate verbs idea" going, you might be able to work something out along the lines of 'changer d'identités' for switching and 's'approprier' for the 'stitching in place'...
the idea behind 'stitch in place' is very close to that of 's'approprier' (the metaphore en moins) or make it yours...
I hope this helps (or helps someone else suggest something really brilliant)
