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
