Default [Theoretical Time] Is a sufficiently complex simulation of you....you?

Let's suppose that after you die, scientists are somehow able to create a computer simulation of your brain, as it was in your final moments. A simulation with the accuracy down to the atomic level.

Would the simulation actually be you or just a copy?

And if you think it would be a copy; why would it just be a copy?

Hahaha, this thread made me chuckle :') So random xD

I'd have to say it's just a copy. Sure, it'd be an exact replica, but it wouldn't be you. Not your flesh and blood, not your being, just not you. If this were to happen to me, it would just be a copy - not the genuine thing, which I am.

Other than that, I believe they'd have a hard time in trying to program my awesomeness into the simulation - just saying xD

What if it had the same self-awareness and consciousness as you? What defines "you"?
