How does the program know that? And thatís the important question; I
donít care if objectively Iím dead as long as subjectively Iím alive.

And just what is so different about these different machines? Why atoms
of course, it always comes back to atoms.

A good thought experiment should be as simple and bare bones as
possible, youíre adding crappy copies and all sorts of other

>As for different processes using the same atoms [Ö]

knows either.
