Man that hurts like hell. Once when I was a kid me and some friends built an improvised see saw with a long plank over a barrel. Yeah it was a disaster waiting to happen, and I am not sure anymore how but the tip of my finger got slammed hard by the plank. The nail split right in half, and I had to wait for it to fall off so a new one could grow. This took a few hours, and the underside of the nail was exposed and hurt, there was blood and I had to dip my finger in hard liquor to sterilize it. Agonizing is too weak a word for it.

No, I had an accident with a knife at work, literally split my thumb. It's ok now, I've been tormenting it all day at work and it finally submitted. It's too numb to whine.

I would say that the value of ship is mostly symbolic, and thus it does not really matter whether or not it's still made of the original wood. However, similar objects (say, the Parthenon) are also wedded to a particular place and context, so it would normally not be desirable to rebuild them elsewhere.

I'm inclined to agree, for the most part, ontological thorns be damned. And yet...

It is said that every cell in our bodies has been replaced over the course of our life. Are we the same person we once were? Our consciousness seems to be continuous, and obviously we are answerable to our past actions.

But to be disassembled here and reassembled elsewhere... Surely to be disassembled would be to die. To be reassembled might be to reborn, but reborn as whom? The same person? To what extent? Even given the same memories and character, could the new incarnation really be said to be the same as the one who died? Or will that one's consciousness end, permanently, with the transmission?

This is to say nothing of the problems of duplication.

You would probably die during the process. The consciousness of the reassembled Anansi would be you, for all intents and purposes, but you would not experience things through its senses, as you would be dead.

Interestingly, there would be no way to know if this is the case, since the newly reformed consciousness would not have any reason to think it has died, so we all may very well do it unwittingly.

I fully concur on the first paragraph. (As an answer to Anansi, I wouldn't terribly mind being duplicated, especially if my clone would be transported to a place I can never go to, say a distant planet. ((If FTL travel was not possible but quantum teleportation/duplication was, but it seems even that has a top speed even if it is greater than c)) After all there can never be enough puddles of self-aware hydrocarbon, bubbling away and growing, always growing)


The second paragraph was a huge fear of kid me, will it be really me who wakes up tomorrow? Do we all just live from blackout to blackout, yet utterly unable to realize it because we inherit the memories and sensations of our predecessor?

It's a thing that is almost as impossible to prove as proving that we are not brains in a jar (probably not even brains), receiving a simulated reality from some matrix or another But impossible and almost impossible are as far away from one another as 1 and infinity. It should in theory be possible to identify what constitutes consciousness and see if it endures sleep, passing out, clinical death, etc.

And being so difficult to prove, immensely hard to cope with, time consuming and backed by (totally false) sense of continuity as day after day passed with me still being me. I got over it

Have you seen Dark City? You should check it out if you haven't; it's all about this.

Tele-copying doubles of myself to distant worlds would be an easy choice. If nothing else, it will give human civilization a better chance of survival.

I'd also have to tele-copy a few doubles to a hellscape though, to make those bastards pay for what they've done.

A pink hat would be well-suited to survive the rigors of long-term space travel. You wouldn't need to worry about food, water, or anything. As long as it reaches a marginally habitable planet, it can just fasten itself onto a surface and become the planet's hat, thus taking over.

Sort of like Spaceward, Ho! if anyone remembers that game.
