I agree that by our current working definition here that it would be no different than death. Which is to say then that death is not really to be feared. (Maybe the manner in which death occurs should though) The comfort or lack of comfort is really all in the perception of death. If it was sold as a transference of conscientiousness from your old body to your new body would people accept it differently? (Even though the fact remains that death is occurring)
