No. It's the people that called me stupid which would be people like you or elph or hawk etc., the average circle jerk of folks, just don't seem to be much smarter than me. While the smarter people, or at least the people that I hold up in that regard, think I'm smart or at least not stupid.

It's not a superiority thing. I don't think I'm super smart. I just don't think you have an intelligence level for me to take seriously in that regard especially when you literally just talk **** to project your own insecurities on me. Even if somebody who I do think is extremely intelligent calls me dumb, like Frown or Marie, then I can't disagree I am kind of dumb sometimes. I'm white trash, of course I'm dumb. But you're also stupid as ****. Much much stupider than you're willing to acknowledge. I'm just more comfortable with who I am than I was back then I guess. Well, I am on medication.

How are you going to scrutinize me for having a superiority complex anyways even if I did have one? Do you just totally lack the self awareness to get the irony or did me and Frown making fun of you legit make you feel inferior?
I don't think you're stupid but it's just super easy to trigger you and I can't help myself.

if we're just our physical brains

then how can we even be said to be the same person, quite literally, when the materials that make up our brain replace themselves

something doesn't add up here big time

is it possible that an exact replica of our conciousness could function as a continuation of ones life?

because intuitively I want to say no, but logically what would be the difference between how it happens now

I guess so long as the electrical and chemical impulses making up your thought processes stay continuous you're as good as you can be. Uploading your brain patterns to a computer or a clone is clearly a copy and not a continuation. Teleportation is just cloning with extra steps. I'd be more worried about falling asleep. Your brain doesn't stop but is that really you waking up?

Actually I think I've read that certain brain cells aren't replaced but I'm not sure and I don't know which ones.

Sure, okay.

Seems more like you were salty about being clowned on TBH.

But I still am super salty about the two most vigilante commulists not being able to give any useful or coherent information to help educate me on it so I had to put in tons of work to sift through all of the uneducated bull**** to actually learn anything. These two fools let me believe socialism is when the state controls the means of production and commulism is when the people control the means of production. Like, I asked and they let me believe that was basically true.

I thought it was mainly the brain cells in the hippocampus that get replaced. Others might have some level of regeneration, but not full replacement. I believe antidepressants mimic the process of replacing cells in the hippocampus to give those with depression some kind of mitigation with their negative feelings.

But anyways, I'm almost positive that not everything in the brain is replaced. We come equipped with 100 billion brain cells at birth and I'd be willing to bet that not every one of them is replaced.
