If it is true that consciousness is generated by a certain configuration of physical components, then by recreating this configuration completely, we will restore consciousness.
Only you know how to tie the concept of a paradox to this statement.
This will not happen, and there is no paradox in this. The brain is a physical instrument of consciousness, as well as other organs, or rather centers. It is the form that is generated by consciousness, and not vice versa.
It depends on what you mean by “brain copy”. It is worth considering that consciousness is not the brain itself, it is a set of biological and chemical processes that occur in our body.
In order to have a copy of consciousness, it is necessary to restore the very work of the brain, all neural connections and their state, including the state of all electronic and chemical signals. However, you will have to recreate the entire body of the creature.
Imagine a computer. If you create exactly the same computer, then its working state will still not be the same. There will not be the same programs, the same video will not be played as on the first one, and so on. You will have to accurately recreate the state of the computer's memory, as well as the state of the processor and all other components of the computer.
Of course, yes. Our consciousness is a collection of neurons, synapses, and various connections in our brain. Most likely, already in this century, people will be able to copy the brain accurately enough (say, to the level of molecules), and these will be complete copies of minds.
By the way, if, say, you suddenly make a copy of your brain so that you can live forever, you won't live forever. When you die, you will simply die, and the new body with a new brain, although they will feel like you at the time of copying, and have the same consciousness, will still be a “different” person. And you will be gone((
Well, let's say the brain is scanned and digitized at 100%… We essentially have a digital model of all the neurons and their relationships with each other. Okay, then HOW does this model of neural connections reflect the personality with its character, tastes, beliefs, experiences, and memory? Well, let's simulate the virtual launch of electrical impulses throughout the virtual brain as in a real brain.. Okay modeled. And hence the question – with all this model and with virtual impulses in the computer environment, will the personality wake up???? That's the question
