But as for the question of transporting the soul: what if the end resuld was a being that was physically exactly the same as me, with the exact same personality and memories, but it wasn't me. You would never know. You would die every time you were transported, and no one would ever know it.

Adding to this - if we die everytime we are disassembled and the end result is actually another being, a duplicate if you will, then perhaps we could somehow create "backups" which we could use if we did die? You know what I mean? Create this backups and when we die, just use the same machine that reassembles us at the other end of teleporting to produce a duplicate being.
