Why “Why Transhumanism Won’t Work” Won’t Work

"What I do accept, though, is the overwhelmingly plausible claim that mentality – both the qualitative and non-qualitative aspects – is an organizational invariant. Thus, it follows that, on my view, if I were to upload my mind it would indeed be conscious, but it would fail to be me. (Although one might add that it would be far closer to being me than any other being [15].)"
