    These are the on-going chronicles of SWAGZILLA, nothing will stop his conquest of all the bitches.

    You slip your hand into his pockets and fish out a stack of cards.
    "My cards!" He says as he struggles with his bindings.
    You slowly look through the deck.
    Theyre a mix of MtG, Pokemon and Yugioh cards.
    There are even some Mushiking cards thrown in.
    Most of them have been defaced using a permanent marker with little notes like "COOL!" "AWESOME!!!" and "HAXXX!!"
    You turn back to him.
    "We will let you go. But I will keep your cards. I want you to find out more about this masked man. I also want you to find anything about any black and red robed figures."
    You pick out the blue eyed white dragon cards and examine them.
    They're knock-offs.
    "You will report back to us at noon tomorrow with any information you have. If you fail to come back, then I have no idea just what will happen to these."
    YOu wave the card in front of him for emphasis.
    "Okay! Okay! I'll come back with info I swear! Just don't harm my babies!" He pleads.
    "Good. I will be waiting for you at noon then."
    You pocket the cards and walk out of the room with your team.
    The heavy metal door slowly closes behind you once more.

    You head back up to the warehouse and into what you now refer to as the throne room.
    The four of you find yourselves alone in it.
    Raymond possibly in his shop, and Naru still with the prisoner.

    "So. We seem to be picking up more and more weird people to take care of. And every moment we spend here, R's trail goes colder. What do we do now?" Erica asks you.
    "I find it unsettling that two seemingly unrelated events both lead to the red-light district." Hina says truthfully.
    Gai stoically nods at you, as if to say he leaves you to decide.

    To the red light district.

    We should all wear stuff that won't stand out that much and we should try to turn our swag down a bit, it might be of detriment there, we'll fail to turn it off but at least we'll have tried.

    We should have our new safehouse set up before we go to the RL district, OR we could come back here. Either way, make sure we have an unobstructed path of retreat.

    Let's go check out the streets, try to buy some supplies for the RL district. I'm sure a lot of those cosplay suits are made of latex or rubber, that'll be important. Compressed air cans can be turned into tiny grenades, etc.

    He shows you the map in your mind.
    "The cardkeys will be found in an envelope tucked behind a panty vending machine outside." he finishes before the connection is cut.

    Gai walks in a few moments later with a pair of black robes, some bicycle chains and a real wooden sword for Hina.

    "Guys. Let's move to the new safehouse." You tell them as you get on your feet and prepare to head out.

    "Let's just go inside guys." You tell your team as you guide them through the pink and white doorway.

    "OOOOOOH. I like this spinning bed!"

    She presses another button.

    Under a pile of costumes tubs of makeup and some hairdye, you find a katana disguised as a fully functional umbrella.
    There is also an MG 3 disguised using orange paint, and belts of rubber tipped ammunition for it.
    "D-DIBS!" Erica shouts from the bed still rotating and vibrating.

    A doll that turns into a gun is also in a corner of the box.
    There's also a brick in a special leather harness with the words "DEMON SLAYER" Inscribed upon it.
    And finally, there was a the fur suit.

    It looked like a fanciful yet menacing mix of a snail, a and a dragon. It was covered in sickly green coarse fur. On its head was a pair of antlers and large rabbit ears.
    'Christ. I do not want to wear that.' You think to yourself as you put it aside.

    With a full inventory now complete, and the rooms as secure as you think they will be, you settle in for what remains of the night.

    The soft mattress was molded around your bodies like linen clad pudding.
    To your right was Hina, quietly sleeping.

    Someone was crawling up your legs.
    You look down to find Naru.

    "My Lord. I need you.." She says softly.

    'She said she had an important message for you. I'll be right there.'

    "Uhm, Naru... What do you need me for?"
    "I need your attention on some news we got.." She answers still crawling up your body sensuously.
    "Then why are you doing that?" You ask her.
    She sits up, now straddling you.
    "I... I have no Idea why I did that. Forgive me my lord." She bows rapildy and repeatedly.

    Hina takes her wooden sword and wraps it in cloth she tore off the bedsheets.

    The constructs in the simulation may be based on real people, but their behaviors are still restricted by their programming. They have not shown any ability to perform beyond their parameters.
    So they are sentient, in the actual definition of the term, but they may not be sapient.
    Also, they don't die. They just have their memories restored to those at the beginning of the simulation and thought-patterns are put in stasis, not stopped.

    and when it is over she is dead, killed by the very fact the game ended and thus stopped existing.

    essentially, if you look at it from moralistic view, whenever this simulation ends, many will die, and accordingly it would be genocide.
    if we DON`T dapplerize her, she will stay and she will die. meaning we left her to her death and may as well murdered straight out.

    LG has stated that she's sentient.


    >Sentience is the ability to feel, perceive or be conscious, or to have subjective experiences. Eighteenth century philosophers used the concept to distinguish the ability to think ("reason") from the ability to feel ("sentience"). In modern western philosophy, sentience is the ability to have sensations or experiences (described by some thinkers as "qualia"). For Eastern philosophy, sentience is a metaphysical quality of all things that requires respect and care. The concept is central to the philosophy of animal rights, because sentience is necessary for the ability to suffer, which entails certain rights. In science fiction, non-human characters described as "sentient" typically have similar abilities, qualities and rights as human beings.

    >What is the difference between "stasis" and "stopped"?
    The difference in computer programming is that Stasis or Paused means that the process remains in memory without additional CPU cycles assigned to it.
    Stopped means that it is removes from memory and the memory space is reallocated.

    A paused process is resumed with all memory addresses intact. A stopped process must be restarted from the very beginning.

    And that's not even getting into processes which can write all of their current memory allocations to disk for later restoration.

    AI's are not a simple binary between 'dead' and 'alive'.

    YOu look around and find something completely out of place.
    Among a row of hentai-dvds and above a stack of Finnish midget porn, you find a lone Dora the Explorer volume.
    'Huh. Staff here must be lazy or something.' you think as you pull it out.
    A mechanical buzzing follows, and the whole shelf in front of the secret entrance swings inwards.

    You find a long dark tunnel leading down. Into the depths.
    "Undercon." Naru whispers beside you.
    "Under what?" Erica asks her.
    "Undercon. The place where the nightmares pool."
    "Ahuh. I guess it's a bad place huh?"
    "Very. It's the city wide collection of tunnels, rooms, sewers. The worst dregs of the conventions gather in there. I suggest we gather more troops if we are to go down there."
    "A large group would prove to be an easy target." Gai tells her.

    I can empathize with wanting to "save" her from an eternal loop of a not nice place. Hell, I'd want to save someone from an eternal loop of heaven, because it's stagnant.


    Girls- Are they good with yet ANOTHER addition? Don't forget we have Perrine, Yuki and Miki coming in as well, and Nahona in a few years. If we push this too far they might start to feel used or resentful of newcomers.

    Bureau- At some point they are going to get fed up with our hacking of constructs and lay down the law.

    Hypocrisy- If we save one construct, we acknowledge that every construct is possibly worth saving. This is essentially "freeing the slaves" where the slaves are an entire universe of AIs. Would we try to get the Bureau to cancel the loop and let them continue as a free universe?

    Hypocrisy subsection: Retaliation- Would the Transpace Guard detect the creation of a new universe by the Bureau and step in? Would they harvest it for reality emitters/bombs and "recruit" everyone inside? Would we be freeing them, or damning them to an eternity of Human Resources?

    Frankly, I think that simulations like this should never be created, or the simulations should be left as unaware constructs.

    My vote here is to not hack the construct, and to petition the director to make the constructs non-sentient.

    Simply being mind-wiped shouldn't be called death. It may significantly alter your personality, depending how much is wiped, but you are still alive. We can't consider a specific personality it's own entity, otherwise things like rhetoric and persuasion could be considered lethal weapons.

    Her consciousness does end. She doesn't have any personalized hardware like a brain, she's run on a computer that runs a lot of other AIs, so she can't be run all the time. Even if she doesn't die on a reset, she'll still die when the computer reboots.

    What do you mean if you lose your whole memory you don't die? If you've lost everything that makes you you, how have you not died? Just physical continuation of a body is not enough, or we wouldn't consider the brain-dead dead.

    We've already established that the process that makes up her consciousness ends, and is replaced by a new process. It's the same pattern, but a different instance. She dies and is replaced by a clone.

    Reversion yes, manipulation maybe depending on how memory works. If we're talking about the real world, altering memory would require physically altering the brain, so yes. You die, and there is a new person almost like you in your place.

    >Your definition would also include natural memory deletion as death, since a memory has been deleted and a thought process interrupted.

    If a memory is forgotten, you're obviously not thinking about it. So your thought process hasn't been interrupted.

    Lurker chiming in here:

    Note that all the previous entities that we've hatted previously were animals. Were they sentient? Why did we not take any issue with making them so? We knew fully well what we were doing with the panda, yet nobody raised any ethical complaints then.

    I assume then, that it's because she has a semblance of humanity that the ethical quandary arises. It goes back to a very fundamental choice of the human condition:

    Would you rather live in ignorance and continue to be happy? (or at least, what you think is happiness)
    Or would you rather risk unhappiness and know the truth?

    To me, the answer is clear.
    Hat the bitch.

    So we've established that she does, in fact, die at each reboot. And so does everyone else.

    IF we define them as people, and not just programs.

    They may be sentient but are they sapient? Are they just complex robots or do they know that they exist? Do these AIs deserve the same rights as we do?

    The Bureau doesn't think so. Otherwise they wouldn't do this.

    Damn this is really tearing me up. But I'm inclined to leave them alone, because I believe that they aren't really people.

    Then again, is this even a problem? They're "born" as adults, live for a training session, then "die." Kinda like mayflies. They live just long enough to fulfill their purpose.

    You walk in the damp tunnels further and further below the city.
    On the floor are various pieces of trash and debris.
    Abandoned foam weapons, a pile of pocky boxes, a fake skull filled with very not fake dried blood, all of this shit and more you found in the tunnels.

    You hear some shuffling and some faint voices in the distance, but no matter how far you walk, you don't seem to get any closer.

    You come to a crossroads.
    In front of you, an arrow is painted with pink spraypaint leading deeper into the tunnels.
    On the left you find the distant glimmer of light.
    And to your right, you hear what apears to be the sound of music and laughing.

    I think the reason he's calling it death is because there is no progress beyond the 3 day limit on the simulation. So it isn't simply losing the memory of the 3 days but the inability to move on with their so called life.

    Being alive doesn't mean you're intelligent enough to have feelings. Bacteria are alive.

    If I try to divorce myself from what I've been TOLD is the right and wrong in regards to what's alive and whether or not we should kill it or save it, I come back to this:
    Humans wanting to save and protect other humans arose as a result of early man needing to stick together to survive. We as human beings, continue to want to save other people we recognize as being a part of our group in order to ensure not only survival, but happiness.

    So really then, the only question is this: Assuming we were to Hat her, who would be made happy?
    Ourselves? Her? Our girlfriend? The Dude? The Director? These are the people whose opinions and emotions matter to us. We should, if possible, seek out their advice on the matter before acting.

    You head left, away from the noise and towards the light.

    The long tunnel stretched for what seemed like forever and the light still continued to loom in the unreachable distance.

    After about an hour of slogging towards the light without getting any closer to it, you call for a quick break.
    Gai and Naru stand guard as you Hina and Erica lean on the curved wall to rest.

    The tunnel is made of curved slabs of concrete put together into a pipe.
    In set intervals along the wall, are recesses about a foot deep, you have no idea what they are for.
    The floor is covered with a fine layer of gravel and dirt, probably washed down here by rains so long ago.

    Nowhere is really normal. Most places aren't as flamboyant with their oddities but they have their idiosyncrasies none the less. People tend to be less willing to express everything about themselves to everyone around them, which I suppose is a good and bad thing.

    No matter where you go people are people, they all laugh, cry, sing, dance and care deeply for things. Whether they are obsessed over minutia of a twenty year old anime that lasted 3 episodes or if they live for their "normal" corporate job.

    Though honestly I am one of the worst people you could ask about this, my childhood was anything other than normal and I spent most of my time living on the fringe and looking in from the outside rather than experiencing it from the inside.

    The only way to really learn this kind of thing is to experience it for yourself, my opinions are infinitely less important than your personal experience when it comes to judging a life lived.

    I never said the audience was usually wrong, just that they're usually the only ones who ever change their opinion.

    I argue because I might be wrong. I argue because I want to believe true things, and if I'm wrong, I want to be proved wrong. The only place I'm going to find that kind of belief-vetting process is in an argument or debate or whatever you want to call it.

    The way I see it, LG is a good writer BECAUSE he is a good troll. Allow me to explain:

    A good story is one that has tension and drama in it. These things come from the characters dealing with the obstacles set before them by the writer. The more troublesome these obstacles are, the more tension is generated, the more emotion we experience as a result of the story.

    LG provides these obstacles by trolling his characters, and by extension, the audience. Sometimes (like right the fuck now for example) he even trolls the audience directly on a meta level.

    In short: I want LG's dick in my butt.

    "It depends on your definition of 'normal'." You tell her. "You grew up here, so the Convention is what's normal to you, correct? Well for us its anything but normal."
    She listens intently.
    "As for the outside, we also have to deal with dangers and challenges like you do here. It's a bit more muted though. I guess you could say that everyone outside is also cosplaying. Our costumes being those of random 'ordinary' people."
    "I thank you for your answer my lord." She tells you with a bow before going back to her post.

    After resting a bit more, your group heads further into the tunnels.
    After a few more minutes, you finally get to the light.
    Its a large yellow lightbuld hanging from some sort of inverted carriage attached to the rail on the ceiling.
    Trailing further into the tunnel was a chain and a power cord attached to the light.
    Some one was pulling the light deeper into the tunnels a few moments ago it seems.

    "I dont like the looks of this." Erica comments as she takes her larger gun out.
    "Smells too much like a trap." Hina agrees as she readies her sword.
    Your hand moves to the brick in your holster.

    People change their minds all the time. They just don't want to "admit defeat" by acknowledging they were wrong about something, and they definitely don't usually do it right in the middle of an argument. If they do change their minds, it will be a while later, in the middle of the night when they've got nothing to do but think.

    There's nothing morally or ethically wrong with being incorrect. People are incorrect about things all the time.

    Why does it matter if you're wrong about your wife's birthday? What purpose does getting the date of your wife's birthday correct serve?

    It prevents you from causing harm to others, even if unintentionally. It allows you to make accurate predictions, and thus allows you to more effectively influence the world around you for the better.

    If you know your wife's birthday is on the 15th of May, you can predict that she will be very happy if you get her a gift on that day. If you do not know that your wife's birthday is on the 15th of May, your wife will be sad when you unintentionally disappoint her.

    I also feel an element of obligation to myself to believe things that are true. I don't want to let my head be cluttered with useless or incorrect beliefs that would limit my ability to interact competently with the world.

    I would also have to ask you if you care about your beliefs being correct. Do you?

    Your belief of what constitutes death is based upon an opinion, a belief, and not something actually concrete or based upon legal precedent.
    Partially, of course, this is because AI rights in the real world have not been a topic of serious study in law yet. But also because a person losing some of their memories, even short-term ones as would be what would be akin to memory erasure procedures, does not legally constitute death.

    Also, there was an argument that an AI exists independent of the hardware that runs their processes, that their consciousness is divorced from the machinery that runs it, and that they are different from humans who have personalized hardware. This is incorrect, as processes and programs may or may not function as intended depending on the hardware that they run on.
    The AI being reverted to an earlier state does not kill the AI, since what made the AI unique is what is recorded in its backup.

    Erica opens fire and sends the group in front sprawling.
    IN the tight quarters of the tunnels, there's no cover from the barrage of rubber bullets she hurled at them.

    You Gai Hina and Naru face off the other six coming in form behind.
    YOur brick proved to be a dangerously versatile weapon as you used it as both a blunt weapon and as a projectile.
    Hina dispatches her attacker with a swift jab to the gut.
    Gai brains a pair of them with his pipe.
    Naru manages to hold off the last one with her chain.

    As you approach the last remaining standing ShirtNinja, He pulls out a small paper wrapped ball.
    "SMOKE BOMB!" he says as he throws it on the ground.
    *poof* A tiny cloud of smoke escapes the crude device.
    You grin as you stoop down to pick up the brick.
    The guy tries to run.
    The flying brick hits the back of his head effectively stopping him.

    "Well, that was quick." You say as you pickup the brick once more.
    "ShirtNinjas. I thought they were all extinct after that flood two years ago." Naru says as she puts away her chain.
    "Just who are these guys?" Hina asks her.
    "Small time criminals." She explains. "THey never fit in with the Hardcore ninja cosplayers, and they rarely had the money for better costumes, so they found themselves here, ambushing those that are unfortunate enough to enter the sewers."

    "Other people don't think so" is not an argument, it's a fallacy. Appeal to popularity.

    >The AI being reverted to an earlier state does not kill the AI, since what made the AI unique is what is recorded in its backup.

    I think this is where our disagreement is. I don't care if you kill me and create a dozen identical clones, I'm still dead. Everything that is unique about me would have been copied twelve times over, but the consciousness typing these words would have ended. If you end Naru's consciousness and create a new, identical consciousness, the first Naru still died because her consciousness ended.

    I'm using the term "world" as a euphemism. If I had a choice between continuing the earth without humanity and continuing all of humanity on a different planet, I would always choose the continuation of humanity. In a sense, people/sentient/things-that-can-feel are the world, or at least the only world we should care about.

    Preventing harm and doing good are sort of equal or even the same thing depending on the situation. Saving someone's life is both preventing harm and doing good.

    >I care more about improving other people's lives than I care about my beliefs about things beyond my control being correct.

    I was referencing that very page, and was providing a... roughly similar definition as given on that and linked pages. A "knowledge" is a thing that is evidenced to be true, hence knowing a true thing, or a "justified true belief." You could argue that it is still "a belief," and be accurate, but it is also "a knowledge," which is separate from a "belief" as that is a thing with out such evidence backing it up.

    Thus, you want your beliefs to be knowledge.

    Maybe I interpreted the information given, I dunno. I don't entirely care, either. I wouldn't claim to be a trained philosopher. I wouldn't claim to be a trained anything, really.

    I was using 'world' to refer to everything other than people. What I mean to be saying is that,
    I agree with you about making accurate predictions and interacting in a competent manner.
    But beliefs often stretch far beyond such things, and more often then not, I see that people would rather disrespect, ignore, hate or even harm, rather than try to understand, when someone else has different beliefs.
    And as I see the world, interacting with people in an effective and helpful way is much more dependent on whether you can understand them than whatever your beliefs dictate beyond the present circumstances.
    I think there is a very substantial difference between preventing harm and doing good, although it might not always seem so. One can prevent harm by acting as a shield between others and the rest of the world and whatever evil is being inflicted on them. But to do good, one must become invested in helping that person make their life better. Am i making the difference clear?

    I don't give a shit if it's not legally supported. Laws can be wrong, and have been wrong in the past. Thank you for correcting me on the fallacy. You still haven't addressed the continuation of consciousness issue.

    You're making the difference clear, but I don't think one exists. You can make someone's life better by preventing harm that would be done to them, and prevent harm by making someone a better person. Either way, preventing harm and doing good are both valuable things to do.

    >I see that people would rather disrespect, ignore, hate or even harm, rather than try to understand, when someone else has different beliefs.

    If I don't attempt to understand someone else's beliefs, I can't critically evaluate them.

    As you arrive back at the junction, you ask them about the music and laughter coming down from the right-hand corridor.
    "Those?" The leader, who ahs introduced himself as Bob, answers "Those are the ravers. They're mostly harmless. Just like to party and trip out a lot. As long as theyre having a good trip, then they're pretty chill people."

    "And what's down this way?" you ask about the tunnel with the arrow.
    "That leads to the old POOKCY Factory. Some Chinese guy set it up about a decade ago to feed the demand in the Asian quarters. It was abandoned after a large fire. Some sections have collapsed through the years."

    Well, obviously I can't expect everyone to value truth as much as I do. Frankly, most people just don't think about what they believe as long as it doesn't cause major problems. A whole lot of other people have entrenched their beliefs as part of their identity, and view any attempt to change their beliefs as an attack on them personally.

    First thing I'd do is to just see how open they are to changing their beliefs, and how important that belief is to them. While most people just don't think about their beliefs, nobody really wants to be wrong, and if it's just something trivial about, say, the feeding habits of koalas, most people are going to change what they believe if given adequate evidence.

    If it's something major like a religion, that's gonna be hard. If it's just a sort of feel-good wishy washy "nice things happen after you die" harmless sort of religion, I'm just going to leave that alone. Maybe let them know I'm atheist and talk about how awesome the universe is in a general sort of way, so they see that you don't have to believe in an afterlife to find beauty in this life. If they bring the subject up, I'm not going to not talk about it, but I'm not going to call them weak-minded, either. That's pointless for anything but audience-appeal. Unless they bring the subject up, I'm not going to go off on a rant about it, but I'll drop little bits of bait now and then so they know I'm open to talking about it.

    Ultimately, I'm going to try to change their beliefs one way or the other, but I'm going to try to not be an asshole about it. Being an asshole would be counter-productive.

    What do mean by wrong? Morally wrong? Because if so, and we're working with moral relativism, then your definition of death is wrong, because it is not held by the majority. Or are you saying that there are moral absolutes?
    Factually wrong? The medical definition of death does not support your definition of it, since function is restored via backup.

    As for the continuation of consciousness, that's your stated definition of what constitutes death. I would argue that it's not death because a backup of the consciousness is available. This is no different than having a vivid dream and then not remembering it upon waking, or of taking memory-blocking drugs before doing an action, then having absolutely no recollection of what was done during the time that the drugs were active. Your definition of death is presupposed on consciousness itself and only itself being the determining factor, and that it can be divorced from the physical components that it runs on.
    Experiments have shown that this is not the case, that the physical is very much linked to the processes that run on them, both in organic humans and in computer programs.

    You have 6 of the ninjas go and question the ravers.
    The rest of you head forwards to the factory.

    After a long walk down a brick-lined tunnel, you find yourselves in a large cavern of concrete and steel
    All-around you, machinery in various state of disrepair lay rusting in several inches of water.
    High above you, portals in the vaulted roof let in shafts of light from the surface.

    You explore the place as a group, water sloshing with each step.
    Everything smells like mold and rust. A faint scent of ash also hangs in the air.

    You look around to try and find any clues of anyone passing through here.
    Nothing catches your eye.

    As you walk up a staircase towards a catwalk that run along the upper level of the factory, someone calls out across the factory floor.

    "остановить!" You turn to see a man wearing goggles and rags. He's holding a crude sear made from a length of pvc piping and a shard of metal sheeting.

    "остановить!" he shouts again.
    Your translator kicks in this time.
    "STOP!" he said with his hand up to emphasise the command.
    Several more similarly clothed people emerge from nooks and crannies they were hiding in.
    Instead of the crude clubs the shirt ninjas were carrying earlier, they were equipped with far more dangerous looking weapons of metal and steel.
    You even see some of them holding crude but effective looking crossbows.

    "Fuck. I didnt know Apoks were in here." Bob comments under his breath.

    Laws can be both morally wrong, such as with slavery, and/or factually wrong, such as with slavery. Slaves being considered 3/5ths of a person for the calculation of population is both morally and factually wrong, and was law in the USA for a period of time.

    If a backup of my consciousness is available, why should I care? I am not the backup, I am this body and this mind. You seem to think that if I have a backup, then get run over by a truck, then have the backup take over, nobody has died. Well, I died, and then the backup, who is exactly like I was at a point in time, takes over. The function of my body has not been restored, my body has been destroyed and replaced. My memory has not been restored, my memory has been destroyed. A clone is living my life.

    Consciousness can't be divorced from the components it runs on. Consciousness is the components it runs on. We are thinking meat.

    Some, yes. I like John Stuart Mill and Utilitarianism, and this one guy I can't remember the name of who talks about the nature of consciousness. I think his first name is David.

    He wrote a great story about a guy who had his brain put in a jar away from the rest of his body, and controlled his body through radio waves. He also had a backup computer that received exactly the same perceptions and functioned exactly like his brain, so as to have a constantly updating backup. However, the computer started receiving data slightly slower than his brain, which was enough to give it it's own sense of self. Do you know who I'm talking about?

    Depends if they were ever both around at the same time, though this would be impossible with the exact same atoms.
    If they were both around at the same time then theoretically they were not actually the same at least spatially, thus different entities no matter how similar.
    However if they were never around at the same time, they are functionally the exact same being and you could argue that the captain of star trek ships has a shorter lifespan than any red-shirt because the teleporter destroys him at least once an episode. Which may or may not be true

    True. There is no good answer to this problem, other than to prevent it from happening in the first place. If we wanted to solve this, we'd have to petition the director to make the constructs used in simulations non-sentient.

    Since a slave did not count fully as a person according to the criteria for 'person' that was legally in use, their definition of population is factually correct.

    But then if you replace the engine in a car it is still the same car

    It might not be the exact car that you originally had but it still has the same components and performance of before

    So if someone is perfectly cloned down to their memories and thought patterns why would they not be the same person? They think, act and believe the same ways that they always have they just have a new engine in their vehicle so to speak

    Fair enough.

    Why do you believe that how you are perceived by others is part of yourself?

    It's not the same car. It has a different engine, therefore it is a different car. It may function exactly the same as the previous car, but it is not the same car.

    Same thing with the clone. If you were cloned, and placed next to your clone, you would not be able to see through both pairs of eyes or hear with both pairs of ears, because you would be separate from them. You and your clone are not the same person.

    "We have food and drinks. We'll give them to you for safe passage and information." You show her the bags.
    "I shall accept the drinks. We could always use the sugar. As for the food, we have no need of it. We get all that we need from whatever we hunt down here."
    One of her men climbs the stairs to claim the bag of softdrinks.

    "This will buy you and your men safe passage." She says as she walks even closer.
    "But not information. There are a myriad of tunnels that connect to this factory. The man you pursue could have gone through any one of those."

    "What will you take for information? Our weapons? Our flashlights?" You ask her, more than prepared to give any of those up.
    "No silly boy." She smiles and shows a mouth full of gleaming white teeth "I WANT YOU."

    Citation for that "turns on itself" thing? I'd be interested in reading that.

    But you don't define yourself by how others perceive you. You define yourself by how you perceive others perceptions of you. Your perception is still all inside your mind, not the minds of others.
    >> Anonymous 04/20/12(Fri)06:26 No.18790935
    Entirely different person here - but that bit about others perception affecting self is a real thing.
    I figure you can look at it one of two ways:

    The first is that since you are forced to live with other people, your identity is not in a closed system and is thus affected by others, most directly by how they perceive you.
    If everyone around you perceives you to be a certain way (even if you aren't), they will treat you as such, affecting how you respond to a given situation.

    The second is much more abstract. That the definition of 'you' is not only your mind, but also anything else that is so similar as to be indistinguishable from you. In this way, others perceiving you create a sort of clone of your personality that also counts as 'you'.

    This is actually what I've been arguing against. There can't be anything "so similar as to be indistinguishable from you". Even if it was a perfect copy, down to the atom, it would still be distinguishable by its position in space or time. If your body was rendered into atoms, and those same atoms were used to make a new you in exactly the same place, it still wouldn't be the same you, because the pattern that is your consciousness was interrupted for however long it took to dissassemble/reassemble you.

    "No." Hina answers, her grip on the wooden sword tightening.
    "A kiss then. Surely you girls can let a kiss go?"
    "No." they say in unison.
    "A hug? 3 minutes." she offers.
    "30 seconds. and you keep your hands where we can see them." Erica tells her.
    "One minute." she retorts

    Hina and Erica look at each other and then look at you.
    "Deal." Erica tells her. "But no funny stuff."
    "Of course." she reaches the base of the stairs and begins to climb towards you.

    "Go on. Give her a hug." Erica says with a grin as she pushes you towards the lady.
    She reaches you and holds you silently for a full minute.
    Before the minute is up, you feel her give your butt a quick squeeze.

    "He went through there." She finally says as she pulls herself away from you.
    She's pointing towards a nondescript door near the end of the catwalk.

    "Thank you, ma'am. Some more of my men should be following us through here as well. Would you also give them safe passage?" You ask her.
    "For those firm buns? Anything." She smiles as you head off.

    You walk through the door and find yourselves in some sort of office, a file cabinet has been overturned revealing a crack in the wall leading to another tunnel.

    Your group walks in through the crack and back into the dark, damp tunnels of Undercon.
