(Mathematician Roger Penrose tried to argue otherwise, in his book "The Emperor's New Mind," but he has pretty much been shot out of the saddle.)
Therefore you propose this idea as possible in this case? In the wildly impossible hypothetical where exact atomic replication has occurred - memories, personality and all that other human garbage would be also copied intact?
