You're dead. While your body has gone cold, your mind is installed onto a computer. You are immortal, providing the power stays on. But are you really you?

Chris Santson asked himself that very question when he died. But then he came back. It shouldn't be possible for someone's mind to exist in a computer and a human body, yet here he was. And if he was still alive, then who is the real Chris?

This science fiction short story is the first part of the Installed Intelligence Shorts prologue series by Phoenix Ward.

This story was formally titled "The Man With Two Bodies".
