What you upload will be the "you" that exists at the instant of uploading.
But immediately after uploading that "you" will begin to change. In fact
"you" have undergone several changes since you posted the above reply. The
structure of both your brain and body have changed. *Every* experience
you've had since then has changed you in some way. In effect "you" as a
collection of molecular structures and mental experiences are in a constant
state of flux.
