If we were able to copy a person... all memory would be lost, it would be like started out with a fresh slate. The person wouldn't know how to breathe, or basically anything. I understand what they are trying to do... but there would be no way to replicated all the electrical connections on the brain.


I think you`re wrong and that an exact copy of a brain, precise to subatomic levels in every respect, would function the same way as the original.

@mcfudge, Wrong! I don't know how much you know about the idea of quantum computing, but lets just say that a quantum computer would make my quad core 3.2 ghz processor look like it belongs in a basic calculator. Not only that, but storage size would go through the roof as well. All that`s really left is for scientists to figure out some more about how our memory works, then translate the electrical impulses in our brains into data that can fit on the biggest effing hdd ever.
