I have a human copy machine that works in a slightly grotesque way.
It grabs you by all of your arms and legs (or the closest part to them, if you're missing one or more limbs) and then tears you into two pieces down the vertical middle.
It then recreates the missing half on both sides using an awesome 3d biological printer.
What we get as the final product is 2 bodies with ½ of them constituted of original parts and ½ of them newly created.
It turns out that with how the mind works, both bodies have the exact same memories, personalities, etc.
, even though they only have half of the original brain each.
They are also biologically identical.
survive the copying process?
Why would you survive or why would you not survive? If you think that you do not survive, do you think that you anything about you might survive in an important sense? Why or why not? If it's relevant to your answer, which one would be you? Why
