6. Swapping places with someone: In 5 seconds, your mind and consciousness will swap
with that of some rich and famous person. Let's say Bill Gates. I hope you are ready.
5. 4. 3. 2. 1. The swap is complete. Bill Gates is now in your body, with access to
your memories and living as you were just before you got to reading this sentence, while
you are living as a billionaire and enjoying Bills bank account. Of course, while you
are in his body you only have access to his memories. Not only does his wife not notice
the switch, but you don't even notice it. You only have access to Bill's memories now
so you do not realize anything is awry. Don't worry, everything will be set back how it
was, in 3. 2. 1. Welcome back. How was it? Of course, you don't remember. Fortunately,
Bill was nice enough to read the last few sentences for you and now they have been
placed into your memory. This shows it is meaningless to say "I wish I could live as
X", or "experience a day in Y's shoes". For all you know, you already are, have, and will.
This, if true, only shows that "you" and "Bill Gates" don't exist apart from your bodies
and memories, so that it is nonsense to talk of exchanging bodies and memories. For it to
make sense there would have to be a "you" soul and a "Bill Gates" soul that switched.
