No, it would NOT be you. It would be a machine programed to simulate

matrix, and then, viola, be conscious as YOURSELF in a machine. You ARE
inseperable from your biochemistry and evolution. You are NOT a movable
entity or program that only coincidently presently occupies your
biological body...you ARE your body.
How do YOU KNOW!
