The Mnemonists

Eric Schwitzgebel

This short story develops the idea of achieving immortality through preserving one's memories and personality with the help of dedicated mnemonists, who install you on a new baby each time your biological body dies.  I make the philosophical ideas behind the story more explicit here.  The story itself is linked below.
