Well yes, but a long way is not synonymous with infinite distance, and I
thought the entire point of this list was to discuss what would happen
when that long distance has been traveled.

But multiplexing is free, at least as far as this topic is concerned
because if itís essential for an AI to do multiplexing then the human
brain must be doing something equivalent, and that takes time too; the
delay is no so great that the 2 sides of our brain become 2 individuals.
The signals in a AI would move 3 million times faster than those in our
brain so parts of the same individual could be thousands of miles apart
and the resultant individuality would be no more shattered than ours are.
