Proof you donít exist II

 

If it was technically possible, someone could anesthetize you while you sleep, make a copy of your body in that state, destroy the original, and then replace the original with the copy.The new person would wake-up thinking it was the old person, but the old person no longer exists.

 

Now suppose this technology has become so advanced that the anesthetization, creation of the copy, destruction of the original, and replacement of the original happen quickly enough that they can be performed on a conscious person at any moment in their life without being noticed.

 

Because of this possibility, you must concede that your past is not really yours at all but simply an objective continuum of reality to which your current self may or may not be connected.Likewise for your future.The present is the only possible residence for your self, but is a point in time and has no volume in which to exist.
