Wait...

Isn't memory based on the arrangement of neural connections a.k.a. synapses? If so, a perfectly preserved brain may be used, using nanotechnology or an appropriately advanced enough 3D scanner, to map the dead guy's neural network and therefore replicate it by inserting nanomachines into the clone?

It is possible, just very, very tedious and hard and requires that they have the same system of memory storage as Terran creatures.

That might be true. Hence all the science fiction about brain uploading and in EVE online, they have a form of brain pattern uploading. The system used in EVE Online (they actually describe it in great detail) is because EVE Online is a MMORPG and functionally is no different from whats used in MMOs. I did think of this earlier and would have mentioned it, but you guys never mentioned any technology like this, so it would have been pointless.

As for memory, its not as simple as neuronal connections, but yea I get what you are saying.
