Forget Me Not?

I’ve recommended the film “Memento” to friends - I thought it was great and recommended it so somebody…

Anyway, it’s an interesting epistemological question regarding personhood and memory. E.g., if our brains are the organic hard drive containing our memories, does God run a backup before we physically die? Or are our memories somehow “shadow copied” to our non-corporeal souls so that after death and after, depending on your eschatology, your resurrection you are “re-integrated” into yourself as you know yourself – or would you even know the difference?
