    i'm also just really wary because we don't know what consciousness is or how it works, like at all, and we can't explain even the simplest qualitative experiences

    like, how weird is consciousness? does it require new rules of physics that we have yet to discover? does it exist at all, or is it some other phenomenon better described as something else? if it does exist, it seems inherently linked to perception of time; does its existence have some kind of special temporal quality that other processes may not?

    i'm certainly not stepping into what is, essentially, a disintegration chamber without more information. i'm barely comfortable with going to sleep, really.

    It seems trivial to me that we exist only as molecules in motion, rather than static arrangements, and that as molecules are replaceable by identical ones, all essential things cannot be due to the identity of individual particles. Thus, the person that exists from t1 to t2 is fundamentally different from the person who exists from t2 to t3, and that relationship would be the same whether nothing happened at t2 or the person were suddenly switched three feet to the right, but otherwise identical.

    Therefore get over it and teleport everywhere :P

    This makes a lot of assumptions about identity re: particles

    Also particles are never identical as one of their properties is always necessarily different, i.e. their locations in space!

    Assumptions which are true, and can be shown by destructive and constructive interference, iirc?

    I recall reading a blog post by an angry quantum guy who wanted to yell at philosophers over this very thing :P

    But in any case there is no such thing as absolute position, so all that matters is relative position...

    the real issue is that we don't understand consciousness or even qualitative experience enough to make assumptions about duplicating or destroying brains. i wouldn't step into that thing.

    Hmm

    I am torn, because on the one hand, I want to go "ok, fair"

    On the other hand I approach 100% certain that everything we experience is somewhere in the brain, in the form of various processes that only are affected by relative positions and forces that are constantly shifting and would not be affected by such a thing.

    (I am legitimately surprised that you would not step into a teleporter, actually.)

    to clarify, i'm talking about the one that destroys the original and makes a copy

    i am troubled by e.g. a thought experiment in which the machine simply creates a copy without destroying the original; obviously this would not transfer or disrupt my consciousness in any way so copies are not "me" and would not "transfer" my consciousness

    i rather think that such duplication may actually be completely physically impossible, though

    I'm only troubled by that insofar as there are limited resources (such as.. Querry...) that one me is going to be heartbroken to lose :P

    I see your point; I think, however, that my objection is to what you are treating as axiomatic - that there is one "you" and that consciousness is a thing that is transferred independently of the continuing motion and interaction of particles, which I think silently lies under everything here. If you accept that consciousnesses require constant interactions, and that you are not the same person as ten years ago because the interactions are different*, then it follows pretty easily that identity is constantly shifting as its components move around, and that that is the only thing we really need bee concerned with

    *this might be hard for some to swallow, but I don't think you can actually meaningfully say that you are without relying on non-physicalist stuff

    Unrelatedly, grading is hard.

    The whole difficulty of consciousness is exactly that: we experience it as singular and continuous even though it is presumably ever-changing.

    Nonetheless, it is axiomatic that my consciousness is distinct from that of other individuals. As a result, if you copy me exactly and produce a clone, it is not me, necessarily. It's not as though I will experience a consciousness of two experiences, as there is no soul being divided between them. I (as in, that self which perceives a continuous conscious experience) will continue to be conscious as my original. I don't see how this would be altered by destroying the original, or how that scenario would be different from destroying the original while making no copy.

    Basically, it seems that consciousness necessarily requires a kind of continuity, and that continuity does exist. If that continuity does not exist then consciousness does not exist in a meaningful way, I think.

    Right - I'm saying that this is constantly happening every moment. In the case of cloning, you both will have the perception of continuity. You could argue that it doesn't exist in one case, and is only a perception... but I think that equally applies to the non-cloned case, and our treatment of them as different cases is a mental kludge to make things easier. The me of yesterday had different knowledge, different feelings, would react to situations (slightly) differently based on a host of things... and for a while, this meat bag was unconscious! I'm not sure why I should think that I'm the same person of yesterday, and if I do, I'm not sure why, in a case where I was killed and rebuilt at the end of sleep as though I'd slept, I should think that it's any different.

    I think this is an easier, clearer case, but I also think that it applies moment to moment as our memories, emotions, and thoughts change. Reducing the time on that to zero changes nothing, we are still beings that exist only through change. Given that, the particular structure and changes are all that matters.

    I actually do have a weird gut feeling about this, I just think that gut feeling is wrong.

    (incidentally, I don't think that continuity exists. I think during sleep the body is basically someone else - it's so different, how could it be me? I wake up with the hallucinations of a different being, who's affected deeply by me, in my mind.)

    I'm certainly not arguing that the clone's continuity doesn't exist. To the clone, he is me. If both continued to exist, I wouldn't even say that the original would have a better claim to the identity. It would be a bureaucratic nightmare. Your consciousness, arguably, has essentially branched, because both individuals have that sense of continuity.

    But the two individuals are separate people, axiomatically, by their very existence. Here's another thought experiment: you are cloned, and then you wait an hour, and then you are shot in the head. Is this worse than destroying the original immediately upon duplication? Must we achieve a perfect, impossible, simultaneous duplication+destruction to preserve that continuity? How would it, in fact, be different for you than being shot in the head without having been duplicated at all?

    Hmmm

    I think I would say that duplication and immediate destruction of the original is sort of how life constantly works, so doing that is probably the same as allowing time to pass, which I don't think we do just because we can't not.

    I think the last bit of your question is what I was getting at with my poorly formed question earlier:
    Shivahn wrote: »
    Hmm EM I am actually curious:

    Can you define what it would mean for, in the case of this transporter thing, your consciousness to cease and someone else's to be there? Especially in a way that's distinguishable from sleep and whatnot?

    I just realized that I don't even think I can do that.

    I'm not sure what you're asking (which someone else, where is "there", etc.)?

    You seem to be concerned with your consciousness disappearing, if I'm reading you correctly. My question then is: what does it actually mean for this to happen, in a way that it's broken by a transporter? What actual phenomenon is occurring that you object to? I formed it incorrectly because I temporarily forgot we're 90% on the same side philosophically and I'm used to talking about this with people who consider the clone to be a different person somehow.

    I am asking, in the case of a simultaneous dissolution of you and reconstruction of an identical you elsewhere, what it is you feel is lost that is not lost every moment of every day, when the exact structure and interactions that are you break down by virtue of changing into a new structure and set of interactions.

    do browsers let you search tab names? i guess there's probably a function to view them as lists so you don't have to guess vaguely by tile and the first or second character you might see. i'm just thinking the search/navigation functionality on a bookmark might be better than a tab but i've never tried fucking with enough tabs to need to figure out a good way to run between them

    It takes practice, I guess. The number of tabs I used grew gradually. These days I just go by the favicon and relative positioning and don't really have an issue. I know where everything is, at least the tabs that I use frequently.

    Do you think it's fair to say that you have a good handle on it despite it being a worse system?

    Yes, there are copies of tabs between the two windows.

    I'd rather see a screenshot of your resource usage.

    Right now Chrome is using 5.14 GB of memory.

    The first one. I just read and don't vote or comment since it isn't my space.

    The problem with bookmarks is that I put stuff in there and never see it again.

    But I have to go through my tabs closing shit every week or so or I get so many that I can't even see the favicons, which is completely unnavigable, so I'm reminded "oh right, that article that I meant to send to [person]" or "oh yeah I stopped in the middle of working on this thing, I should finish it".

    Also I have some tabs open that amuse me whenever I see them. I do this on purpose, they're like a little surprise every time I go through to close out tabs.

    The three nights before tonight I took some nyquil and had three different nightmares involving my wife.

    I told her yesterday that if she doesn't stop Freddy Krugering me I'm going to divorce her.

    Real talk I ran into a friend at the climbing gym who's a professor of women's studies and we talked about the revolution between climbs

    and last night I dreamt that SiG and Elizabeth Warren won the presidency and I was following them around an event as a personal assistant.

    It was pretty weird, in retrospect.

    I had a dream last night that I asked two different girls (neither of which I have seen in 15+ years) to my high school prom and completely stood up one of them and took the other.

    Also our prom had prison guards working security.

    Also there was time travel.

    That wasn't a dream.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.
