This is one of the biggest, most-debated issues in philosophy. There is no clear answer at this time, although what normally happens is half the responses in a thread like this will be "Obviously the mind has been downloaded and anyone that thinks otherwise must think there is some magical soul or something" and the other half will be sure that "Obviously minds cannot be "moved", and anyone that thinks otherwise must think there is some magical soul or something".
Not true - plenty of people will say, "Prove there isn't a magical soul or something."
