“when i was a young boy, we weren’t allowed to play with carbapenems”

Had an interesting conversation with a philosphy major the other day. Was talking about teleporting and how there’s some idea where you can just rearrange the same atoms and molecules in the same pattern and it should be teleporting one person to the other place. Philosphy person then asks about the definition of identity. Even if the atoms are the same arrangement, they are not the same atoms. Is that essential to for the person to have the same identity? Conversation ends.
