  1. Look at dissimilar twins. They are COMPLETELY different people, no more like each other than any brothers and sisters. And appearance, and characters. So there would be no you. You would be the unborn brother of a completely different person living.

  2. Even if it was still the same egg and the same sperm, but some events would have changed and something went differently in the process of pregnancy, childbirth and growth and development-you would have been somehow different. And with a different genetic code, it wouldn't be you at all. You might be of a different gender altogether, for example.

  3. A person begins to form at the embryo stage. Male and female cells carry a specific set of information called DNA. Here are your blue eyes “like mom” and strong-willed chin “like dad”, as well as your inclinations, temperament and predispositions. And on a case-by-case basis, you will get a completely random set of characteristics.�

    Further, the cultivation of your personality takes place in the external environment, in society. Here is the influence of parents, friends, victories and defeats, politics. and economy class. the situation in the country. All this affects your personality. Down to the smallest detail.

    No, you would be a completely different person.

  4. No, and our development does not depend so much on the ordinal number of a pair of germ cells.

    First, the volume of brain structures is not inherited, their variability reaches 40 times. Imagine this variability in foot size or head circumference? Tailors and shoemakers would only work to order.

    Secondly, after the development of the fetus, extragenomic inheritance of social skills comes into play, and it is precisely this inheritance – upbringing and the influence of the social environment – that determines our “being ourselves”.

    It is important to understand that the brain is a dynamic structure, and how you “go” in the “car” that you got from mom and dad depends on where you “fill up”, at the “branded gas station” or at the “nameless highway”. Your being yourself changes dynamically accordingly, each new day new synaptic contacts between neurons are created, and the old ones are destroyed. Our “computer” recreates itself.

    In total, it is impossible to recreate “being yourself” even under the most stringent experimental conditions.
