But I think you may be erased naturally all the time (albiet slowly) and you are only the latest clone

Not much I can do about that, but I can be a paranoid conspiracy theorist about human+ until I'm an immortal.

And so if you replicate the blueprint is it something seperate from or a continuation of a concioussness?

I have yet to find a satisfactory answer in either direction

Anyone read Dennett's 'Consciousness Explained'?
I started reading once and really liked where he was going but had little time for reading back then and it's not an easy book you can read casually for ten minutes a day.
Gonna try against during my vacation.

i read this

then watched the movie with johnny deep that they made from it.


would be nice to upload your conscious mind as some program on a tv screen in someones home. that was weird where the lady would talk to the johnny deep character at the table eating and hes just a tv screen
