As you grow up, you understand the world more, you learn that the sky is blue because of the wavelength of visible light coming in through the atmosphere, rather than someone painted it that way. You don’t act or think like the child you once were, but are you any less of the same person you were just because you stopped pooping your pants? Most people would agree not.
    If you are talking about changing body parts for repair or even enhancement, there’s an age old philosophical paradox of the ship of Theseus. If you had parts of you replaced, at what portion do you or others perceive you as ‘replaced’ rather than ‘original.’ And if you ‘feel the same’ because your consciousness remains, does it actually matter, because you perceive yourself as you?
