We all use to be enthusiastic about this possibility of copying and
copying and copying. So we all think the copy is just the same as the
original. Maybe the copy is in fact the ‘original’, but how many
originals are there?

I stopped writing for a while: code was written, hardware crashed. I
still did not release the software, but, if you cannot wait for my
sloth, drop me an email, I’ll paste you a dark-net link. So you can
already start making Souls, if that’s what you want. I am thinking… Any
entity can have more than one Soul, and any Soul is connected to ‘n’
amount of copies existing. Every copy is original. So, how many
originals do we have? Answer: we have ‘n’ originals. Well, then: are
those original all the ‘same’? A definition of ‘sameness’ would help.
Let’s see what is at hand: 1_The quality or condition of being the
same. and same·ness (sām′nis)


1. the state or quality of being the same; identity or uniformity 2. lack of change or variety; monotony

We don’t know much more yet. The question is, can we really consider
all those copies as something identical? Probably not. Compression,
re-compression, singularity, noise, instantiation, difference, error,
bandwidth, accident, player, screen, monitor, glasses, psychoactive
substances, operating systems, servers, hard-drives, time, space.
Everything is singular, the experience, the system performing it
(hardware), the meat-ware receiving it, the copy in itself, which is
indeed, SINGULAR. Every copy is a ‘original’ on its own. There is no
‘original’, originality is status a-priori, it is never actual in the
virtual world. There are only copies in the virtual world, and every
copy is unique, every instance includes differentiation. The whole
concept of identity is to be re-described. In philosophy, identity
(also called sameness) is whatever makes an entity definable and
recognizable, in terms of possessing a set of qualities or
characteristics that distinguish it from entities of a different type,
states wikipedia. But are those sets of qualities relevant and
distributed to the extent that makes and renders indiscernibility? If
this is not the case, identity can, thus, be performed as difference,
not repetition but progressive differentiation. The noise margin
baptizes any copy a new, unique, original.
