My teacher used this as an example then I was in High School. First he described the process and asked whenever the teleported person WAS the real person, the same one as had entered the teleport station in the first place - which we all agreed it was. Then he said. "But what if the machine was broken? What if the oiginal wasn't destroyed, but you suddenly had TWO copies of the same woman? Which one is then the real one?" And now everyone thoguht the teleported copy sasn't the real person, after all. :-) Made me very weary of the whole concept.
