Two instances of one type of thing are still two things, not one, regardless of
what these things are or what they think they are. This was true in the past and
will be true in the future. I'm afraid that starting from the assumption that cool
and potentially life-saving procedures such as teleportation/destructive
uploading/cryonics do work (people are afraid of dying and want them to work) and
then working backwards to a convenient meaning of survival compatible with "These
things will save me!" is a dead end.
