OK  ---  I think some of the arguments for memories that have been mentioned 
here carry merit.

It may be the case that for a person to be that person he/she needs to preserve 
his Unique Awareness Sensor and most of his/her memories.

The UAS that I envision is not one little hunk of brain in one tiny region of 
the brain (although it might turn out to be the case)  but is probably a net or 
group of brain parts.  The distinction I want to make is that the awareness 
sensor is *different* from the actual storage of memories although they may 
interact very closely.

The position that I am holding is that memories alone are not the survival of an
individual.  Further that one needs to have the original device that feels the 
memories and senses awareness to be considered the original person.

The most important part of this combination is the UAS and the memories are 
important to complete survival but secondary.
