A complicate expression for a simple science-fiction scenario: Imagine some installation like Scottie's "beaming machine" in the Enterprise. But this one is not for relocating a body. It relocates a personality. It can make a "backup" and restore this in another body. In fact you make a nano-scan and / or nano-replication of every electrical/chemical state, maybe even of every synaptical connection in a brain. So you could for example clone a personality, let's say Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro, in someone else's body... Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Or swap personalities...

Next step is only a small step: A "neuro-connection beam" capable of pulling or pushing a personality from or into a body, without the need of that body to climb onto a special machine, maybe even without that body's current occupant personality's consent. I guess this could be quite funny, if feasable.
