Agi And Personhood

Recommended Posts

Is there a point where this person stops being a person?

When the brains stops purposefully directing the lot. When they are no longer intentionally interactively self-conscious.

Sentience alone is not person-hood. Plants are sentient, and are eaten live by everyone.

If the brain is replaced -- one cell at a time -- there might not be any such change. If one brain cell can be replaced -- in time -- they can all be replaced. What then do we have? Is it still a Human brain?

If one brain cell is replaced, is it still a human brain? Yes. Is there a tipping point where it is no longer human? Maybe.
