And you will have even less memory of it if you are not the survivor.
Forget teleportation, if you walk into a torture chamber you will
remember none of the subsequent events after theyíve finished
disemboweling you. Nevertheless Iíd prefer not to walk into that
chamber; but thatís just me,
thereís no arguing over matters of taste.

A good thought experiment should examine an idea of illustrate a point;
I canít see how this torture the original and pamper the copy business
(or the other way around) can do either.
