I was making a joke. Actually I agree with you (I think!) in that I don't see how it would be an issue. Human cells are constantly being replaced anyway; if something else (natural or synthetic) is substituted, and it exactly matches the original cells' form and function, how could that affect the person's identity?

On that note, how about an alternative "Confession" comic?

Nanomachines can't interact with the soul because (1) machines weren't co-created with souls, (2) machines have no supernatural aspects, and (3) souls don't exist.

I should probably have put that third one first.

Since they've been together for the entire time, wouldn't that be a relationship of Theseus?
