    I guess if somebody created biological life somehow, souls could use that for incarnating purposes. If that were by resurrecting dead bodies, I don't see why those would be inhabited by the same soul that inhabited them before.

    This is often said by those materialists seeking to deny the reality of Near-Death Experiences (NDEs). However, it turns out to be a case of moveable goalposts. Whenever it is proved wrong (and it often has been), the term "truly dead" is redefined over and over again so as to make it a meaningless term - it then means whatever it is required to mean in order to support the desired position (belief system) held by a particular person or faction.

    I don't see why they wouldn't be the same person after reanimation, considering people revived from very transient "death" by more conventional modern means come back just fine, but they'd probably never be 100 percent again if they stayed dead for too long. If somehow they didn't come back the same, though, that would be some truly Lovecraftian stuff and I'm sure the program would be immediately called off.

    Ah, it seems to me there's all sorts of problems here. Unless you could be reanimated to independent life, who'd be in charge of your wishes?

    A more likely scenario I could imagine would be the ability to download (some at least of) your brain contents to a computer at some future date. But there again, who's in charge of 'you'? And in both cases, could you say 'I'd rather be dead again' and have that wish carried out? And who'd kill you?

    I'd say that sounds much less likely. Downloading your neurological data onto a computer would only create an additional, inanimate copy of it, totally separate from the version your soul possesses. Speedwell is right about death being a case of movable goalposts; heck, we've already seen them moved to the point of being able to come back as a child after you die, theoretically enabling nigh-immortality, so really, what is reanimating corpses in the face of that sorcery? Something that pales in comparison, I'd say.

    That's interesting - I'm no scientist. But even an inanimate copy would be quite a useful file for people to look into.
