[ExI] Strong AI Hypothesis: logically flawed?

​I think what is missing here is the idea of real death.  All body cells
die.  All of them.  Yes, cells are replaced while you are living but there
is a continuity effected by the still living ones.  If all cells are dead
there is no continuity possible.

What y'all seem to be saying is that if you could extract a copy of your
memories, put them into hard drive, then download them into some other body
or robot, then there are two yous​
​.  I say there is only one 'you' and if it is dead then it cannot awaken
somewhere else.  A copy is not the original.

The original premise of all this is, of course, impossible.  bill w​
