Are you the same person you were a minute ago?
What a silly question. Of course you are. You have the same skin, the same bones, the same meat. More importantly, because of course we are talking about your mind here, the essence of your good self, you have the same brain: the same (more or less) neurons, the same synapses, the same blood vessels and connective tissue inside your skull. More profoundly, you have the same memories. And unless something alarming happens to you, like an almighty thwack on the head, you have the impression of an unbroken continuum of consciousness.
