Let's just hypothesize bit...
Let's assume that at some point, science is so far advanced that we can artificially build a 100% functioning brain that in no way is inferior to a
(I know that it's still open to debate whether the "soul" and consciousness is actually something external or whether it is indeed created as a
function of our brain. For this debate, let's assume that consciousness is "created" by the brain, even if I personally do not believe this).
So..we construct a brain, and this brain because it is so advanced gets conscious. Means, it becomes a persona.
Since we mechanically or electronically BUILT this brain, we can build a second one which is identical to the first one. (In the same way as computer
chips are identical in function, we can also mass produce them).
When we built this second brain which is an exact copy of the first brain, and the second brain also develops a consciousness...how can THIS
consciousness, this "ego" be different from that of the first brain? If the mechanics (which I simply assume in this philosophic idea) are the exact
same and the brain consists of exactly the same parts? Would we create two different persona even when the "construction" is exactly the same?
In the same way..let's assume we can 100% duplicate/clone another person.
I am talking 100%, without exception, down to the cell level. Every even smallest part of the body would be in the same position and state as the
"original" person. The brain would be 100% a clone, the same number of brain cells etc..
Would this clone then also be "another persona"....if so, why and how?
Of course it wouldn't be less bizarre if the clone would NOT be "another persona"...if the two persons would have one consciousness, which would be
odd since we'd in-fact have two beings.
