It wouldnt work... Your mind comes from another body, the spirit/esprit/soul. It is linked to your brain. If your brain is destroyed, your soul go out somewhere in that incomprehensible outer world. Even if you managed to transfer what you think to be your consciouness, it would be at best the memory of your life, not yourself. If we manage to make a device that would allow to transfer someone's memories from living people, you would end up with two entities, the original and a soul less copy that would, most probably lose it and go mad. All i can say is that i fear what could happen is you give these copies, a moving body like an android. It could lead to a machines domination world like in terminator .
I dont' put anything past the powers of quantum computing though, that's a whole new ball game, especially with data transfer and retention.
