Oh yes I could be quite sure and content that my consciousness will not
slip in the least after setting artificial neurons loose in my brain.
I imagine it would go something like this:
YOU: Doc! I feel myself slipping away, the Other is gaining control!
Stop the procedure!!!
DOC: Hmmm, well, we just went pretty much past the point of no return, a
reversal now would almost certainly be fatal....
YOU!: Uhhh, that's ok, Doc, never mind, I feel fine! (heh heh heh)
My thought is: you'll never know, unless you're awake the whole time,
and even then it may be iffy. And also: it doesn't matter to anyone
