  1. (KJV)Acts 16:30-31
    And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
    And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
    (KJV)John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
    that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  2. An object defined for human record-keeping, like a ship, can have all its pieces replaced so long as it's done a small bit at a time. So long as it's still recognizable, the object assimilates any parts put into it. That's why the Ship of Theseus is still the same ship, but it wouldn't be if Theseus threw out the ship and bought another; the ship assimilates planks into itself one at a time.

  3. I think humanity already found out the correct answer for this long time ago, but they just don't want to recognize sad, cold truth of it so pretends there is not clear answer yet.

  4. In the most bare, I am coordinates (information) of atoms in a x, y and z space. Replicate those atoms and those coordinates exactly, then you have me from that instance where my atomic coordinates were recorded.

  5. I would say that we are a colony of dumb little micro organisms that evolved a command centra to be able to survive better (the brain) which accidently evolved what we call consciousness. The question is then, if many dumb things can create something with a consiousness, wouldn't that also maybe apply to computers? Think of all connected computers and processors. With many enough, many dumb processors might together evolve some kind of consiousness. The key to real A.I might just be large quantities of processors as well as some kind of environment to respond to.

  6. Can someone educated on the subject let me know; if, all of your cells were "cancer" cells(immortal) would you be able to live long. I am saying if it did not affect you leading to your death the way it does (cancer)

  7. The most YOU/only YOU is your BRAIN which can be divided into two sections Left and Right hemisphere, works differently and if Corpus Callosum is removed works individually. Who actually are you/we? Right side or Left side or Both OR you/we are just experiencing the existence of it(Brain) through consciousness.
    Besides we don't know what consciousness is. 😖😖
