It's not so clear though how that is related to consciousness and
I disagree, I think it is very clear. If things need to be that precise, if
in a quantum state destroys our identity then we die about 10^44 times a
a consciousness that never changes is not a consciousness.
Do you see consciousness as a thing or as a process?

The real question is about our minds, and despite what some like Roger
Penrose say I
think our minds are probably entirely classical.
Why? If minds are classical then they are easy to copy, in principle. Why then are there
not lots of John Clarks running around?
?? Didn't you notice the tension between "easy" and "in principle"? It's possible, in
principle, to copy a Boeing 777, because it's a classical object. But if it were easy
Boeing would be out of business.
