That the mind is physical is not in dispute. As a biologist with forty years of experience I merely ask you how do you imagine it can be copied? Extraordinary claims such as this require some explanation and simply calling me an idiot won't cut it because there isn't a scientist in the entire world who agrees with your proposition. Is every one of them an idiot as well?
