Is there another you scattered around the universe somewhere?

Here is a fun and interesting argument suggesting that the answer is “yes, probably.” The conclusion, as the author states it:

As long as somewhere in the universe, in some temporal order there exists a functional equivalent of each of your cognitive states, no matter where, in what material, or how grossly distributed over time and space, then there is a mental duplicate of you in existence.

Some good comments on the post are worth reading, too.
