@ijesuschrist, “If your brain was replaced with identical configuration of new atoms, instantaneously, would you still be aware, or would your awareness disappear.”
That’s exactly what has been bothering me for the past several weeks.

@eliot, maybe your awareness is derived from memories and if everything including memories were replaced then possibly the same awareness would occur
This is why I’m always uncertain when I see movies about people ‘transferring their consciousness’ into machines in order to live forever. I can’t help thinking that in the transfer the consciousness is actually gone.
