I need some assistance with these assignment. choose one from these three topics:1. parfit claims that in simple teletransportation you are transported to mars (i.e., the person exiting the teletransporter on mars is you) but in the branch-line you are not transported to mars (i.e., the person e Thank you in advance for the help! At the same time, we can remember of sorites paradox, when it was necessary to differentiate when a grain of wheat is turned into a heap.
Parfit suggests the following: “But this is not the case with the final spectrum. If both my entire body and my entire mind were replaced, well, I wouldn’t be around” (Goodenough 1996, p. 113). Derek Parfit goes even further in his considerations and separates the concepts of “identity” and “survival”.  .The survival in accordance with Parfit, is present in case of a character possesses “character and apparent memories” (Ibid., p. 115). Sydney Shoemaker undermines these claims of Parfit and claims that someone can be considered as a surviving person in case his/her brain is transplanted into a new body, while this person “has [the original persons] character and apparent memories” (cited by Perry 2008). Parfit would rather claim that a person would survive, but as two different persons, which would not be clearly identical.
Parfit correlates a concept of survival with a concept of a personal identity. Actually, Parfit is more focused on the ontological status of persons, which considers an option of fission. The theory of Parfit has been vividly discussed since 1970. This complex and a challenging nature of his theory should be considered in relation to the sorites paradox. This unusual perspective can help to open new prospects of Parfit’s theory. Let us focus on Parfit’s personal identity theory. The existence of a person is confirmed by Parfit. At the same time, “the persons do not have to be listed separately on an inventory of what exists” (Perry, 2008). It can be said that in the majority of cases persons are separated from their bodies and psychologies, but there is a certain frame of every person’s existence. It consists of brain and body and there is a number of connected series of mental and physical events.
