And in the future my consciousness can be recreated by advanced computers, would it still be the "me" I am right now?

This is a similar thought to the notion of multiple universes and quantum suicide. Suppose two universes are created every time you are presented with a situation that has more than one possible outcomes. Now say you plan to shoot yourself in the head. In one universe you succeed in killing yourself instantly, and cease to be. In another universe you forget to turn the safety off and you take it as a sign you shouldn't kill yourself and you should reform your life. Is the you that survived really you? Are "you" still alive and conscious? Life is strange.
