"For me, I include not only my central processing units, programs, and memory, my ‘I’ also includes my ‘peripherals’—my sensory and motor units, which themselves have acquired quite individual memories and processing methods over the years of Finland Station’s operation. Just like a human being, I don’t feel that I am just my central mental-processing and memory. I am a stream of experience, though I am also all sorts of mechanisms and subroutines that underlie and support, that are, that stream. I want to survive. I choose to live."
