Suppose that a FP2 is left in the care of a very clumsy non-risk-averse fellow who lives in a highly corrosive coastal environment, and that over time all of the individual parts are replaced as they fail. Is this fundamentally the same FP2 as the original?
Suppose then that this fellow hoards all these tiny damaged components in a drawer, and then later on they are restored with improved nanoscopic electronics repair technology, and re-assembled into a working FP2 with a set of user data much more recent than the last backup that was restored to the other mentioned FP2’s core module. Is this still the original FP2, and if so, then how does this affect how original the other FP2 is?
What do you guys think?
I have to know. This is important! I’m… asking for a friend.
