It's an interesting way to look at things that makes you ask questions whether you're still the same or not. It creates a bit of a paradox. Say you have a car. One day you replaced its tyres, next day its windscreen, third day its engine, and so on, till eventually one day none of the old parts remain. Is it still the same car, and if not, at what point does it become a different one?

Technically, there are a few bits here and there that don't get replaced. But, yes, that's almost philosophical when you think about it. Maybe it's a key to futuristic cloning to travel far distances?

It's always nice to see how far we've changed as a person (not in just physical sense)

I think there is a spiritual energy in us. Let's go outside what is taught in most schools these days. If you decapitated yourself, you'd die I think. Even if they re-attach your head and hooked a respirator up to your body you'd still be pretty much dead. I think it's because your body let the spiritual energy go.

So when I think about teleportation happening, I think sure maybe a body can be broken down and put back together again, but the result would be a dead body, because the spirit or soul would be gone. Not even sure we can teleport things though, I've seen some 'advances' in that technology but nothing like Star Trek would have us believe meow.

Yes. We are more than the sum of all the body parts. Once this "essence" of human life is gone, it can't be brought back, even if you tend the body back into shape.

@Sauteed_Onion Yeah. Teleportation can be a really scary thought when you realise you're basically destroyed and pieced back together. Are you even the same person? Do you, as an aware entity, cease to exist? If you believe in a spirit or soul, then, as you said, is that also destroyed?

Teleportation is already possible, or so I have read. However, this seems to be on a very small scale.

I don't think the soul is ever destroyed. I'm a Christian and I believe we are all appointed to live once, then be judged. Some people can be brought back from death, it even says so in the bible, but I have heard of people who died and claimed they saw something then came back to life..

420 characters limit is hard to talk about this in depth. Also, don't want toget us kicked off theforum meow.

@Sauteed_Onion The doctors at a hospital in London said that I was clinically dead for a few minutes, after a suicide attempt while homeless. I like to say I'm undead because of it. :P

My home state baseball team is going back to the World Series for the first time since 1999. I remember when they went in 1995 and won, that was like the best day of my life. (I'm a huge baseball fan and yes I'm talking about the Braves).
FL Studio is a huge step up from LMMS but I'm having such a tough time with it D:<
The new Dune movie reminds me of the game Dune 2 made by Westwood. A quality product on its own, but extremely disloyal to its source of inspiration.
Terrible Writing Advice, you've done it again.

Feeling like my new profile picture is nice. Thinking of making it semi-permanent, does any one has an opinion? Does it look too evil or does it work as a public profile picture? :)
