So, if you invent teleportation and you disappear in one place and get an exact copy in another - how do you know that you didn't die when disintegrating? If you ask your copy - it won't know. In any test your copy will behave and will be exactly you from before teleportation. But what happened to the "old" you, the one that disintegrated? Clearly there is an interruption in your life - the teleportation point. Will your conscience continue through the act of teleportation or will the old copy die - will you die - and a copy will replace you but with a new conscience?
