To Bob Ettinger:
Your account of Tipler and Moravec's ideas is interesting. And I thank
you for it. I myself may be making an assumption here, which their
ideas bring out: that our personalities are so much connected to our
memories (plus our genetics) that without those memories we could not
retain the same personality. I still think this is likely, but it IS
a separate assumption. (Why do I think it likely? Because what I know
about brain structure has no special place for a "personality" 
separate from the detailed connectivity of our neurons --- which also
is the same as our memories). 

And naturally I want to live as long as possible and if I can avoid
the need to be suspended.

			Best and long long life to all,

				Thomas Donaldson
