What you've done here, is merely to create a clone, whose experiences will
soon vastly diverge from the original, living, being. This, to me is
unsatisfactory, since all he, she, or it, is a carbon copy. Not good. Why not
good? Because it messes with Pattern Identity Theory, now there are two
patterns, one which is less valid then the other, the copy. If the original's
electrons (?) were transmitted to the Magic Eternal-Life Network; and there
was no living being left behind, that would be what we need.
