Mind Transfer? (part 3)
To follow this line of reasoning, reproducing or transferring a consciousness requires the existence of a mechanism to properly house and facilitate the function of neural data, whether that data is complex computer code or something else. Essentially, a "brain print" exists with each person, a unique and separate neural design. If we could somehow copy that brain print, perhaps the knowledge, experiences, and even personality of a person could be reproduced. But if a consciousness is tied to its physical brain, the best we may be able to achieve would only be a copy, not an actual transfer, of an individual person.
