I am programmed to say this argument is going no-where and is quite ridiculous and a waste of time.
Seriously though, who cares?
Do we really have any idea how such a teleportation device would work?
Is it possible at all?
Is all of this purely theoretical with no end in sight?
Shouldn't we just talk about the identity issue instead, since that will ultimately effect ALL future endeavors AFTER the singularity?
Hasn't the identity issue been resolved on numerous occasions or are there wholes in what people have said already?
