No, I'm not prepping. I don't have the energy for all that malarkey. I'm just gonna die in the chaos, get some rest finally.

I don't have time or funds to prep, but I do have time to pay attention to who around me is prepping.

This is exactly my worst nightmare. If I'm ever threatened with digitization/uplift I'm going to find a way to pulverize my brain so nothing can be recovered and enslaved. Better oblivion than digital servitude.

It’s likely not going to actually be you though.

True, but to the recreated being it will feel exactly like the same person. I don't want recreated me endlessly checking 33 times a second for a signal, without rest, on and on, like that poor person in the Expanse.

It's no different from the arguments that "you" aren't "you" after you go to sleep. How can you be sure that the you that wakes up is the same one that went to sleep?

You would have the same memories and the same body and same brain chemicals etc, so you would be mostly the same, but your personality would change slightly every day and . . .hey wait a minute, that literally is what happens and why people have moods and "bad days"!

That’s fundamentally different than a digitized copy of oneself. When I die, I’m dead. Sure my memories, patterns, emotions, etc can be replicated. From an outside perspective, one might view the copy as “me”. However, that would not change the fact that my biological self would be permanently detached (assuming there is no afterlife). I’d have no consciousness of the copy, completely and utterly detached. We may even exist simultaneously, however we would still be separate.

Unless you’re describing the act of actual uploading, but somehow converting biology into binary seems incomprehensible to me and may not even be possible. Even if it was, it’s probably impossible to discern the dilemma I just described (it actually being you vs merely a copy).
