It's the difference between making a copy and destroying the original, as
per the Star Trek teleporter, or making a copy and preserving the original,
as per the Star Trek teleporter when it malfunctions. In the former case,
you will have continuity of identity with the copy, while in the latter,
you have a 50% chance of having continuity with the copy or the original.
