Other animalists, such as <a name="5"></a><A HREF="../../Notes/Notes_1/Notes_109.htm">Wiggins</A><SUP>7</SUP>, insist (or are said to insist, or used to insist) that the only persons are indeed <a name="6"></a><A HREF="../../Notes/Notes_0/Notes_74.htm">human beings</A><SUP>8</SUP>, or are (maybe) other animals. </li><li>I incline to agree with Olson on the topic of <a name="7"></a><A HREF="../../Notes/Notes_7/Notes_734.htm">what we are</A><SUP>9</SUP>, but need to press hard with <a name="8"></a><A HREF="../../Notes/Notes_0/Notes_32.htm">thought experiments</A><SUP>10</SUP> to see why we can t separate the two  that is, why we can t separate where we go as <a name="9"></a><A HREF="../../Notes/Notes_0/Notes_9.htm">persons</A><SUP>11</SUP> from where we go as animals: our personhood can t be pealed off from our animality and ported to some other infrastructure  or at least not while preserving our identity. </li><li>There is a distinction between persons and human animals.
