Jordan: "You are information. Yes, all 42 of them would be the real you."

The more I think about this, the more Jordan's thought process perplexes me. There cannot be 42 "me's." If there were 42 COPIES of "me" made, today, they would go out into the world, and each become their own person. One might learn French and how to play the oboe, another might learn German and how to play the harp. Unfortunately, "I" would not know these same things.

Back to ridding ourselves of "emotional and mental" baggage, I've been under the impression the goal of cryonicists was to preserve themselves, memories AND personality, intact. A person devoid of emotion wouldn't have much of a personality, would they?

Just thinking in print.
