Hi Luis,

Your post reminded me of a quote of Richard Feynman:

"[T]he atoms that are in the brain are being replaced; the ones that were there before have gone away. So what is this mind of ours: what are these atoms with consciousness? Last week's potatoes! They now can remember what was going on in my mind a year ago--a mind which has long ago been replaced."

("What Do You Care What Other People Think?", Richard P. Feynman, 1988)

Warm regards,

Paul
