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

a machine.  You are nontransferable.  You cannot be conscious in your 
body one moment, imprint a copy of your personality, etc, on an inanimate 
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!
