More importantly, the original's ability to experience consciousness in the future and to a degree effect desirable future personal mind outcomes, would also be gone.

This is vague language. You defined "presence" as mind-producing
activity, but you said that that activity doesn't need to exist
throughout the uploading process. Well, then you've just made a NEW
copy. You, the person that I'm talking to right now, the one who
actually experienced the life history in your memories (rather than
just having them recreated de novo during uploading), would be gone.
