You don't need the QTI or science fiction thought experiments to be
puzzled by personal identity. Almost all of the matter in my body
(including that in my brain) is different to that in it a year ago.
Moreover, the "original" matter has disintegrated and been dispersed
throughout the environment. So in a very real sense, ordinary life
involves the same process as destructive teleportation; it just
happens more slowly.
