To (over)simplify my position a bit, I think (the morally relevant construal of) persons are like numbers. One can have two oranges, two apples or a two written on a page, and it's all the same "two".

Ah yes, Nato, the important part of "two" is relational, the same as for consciousness. That's a clever way to look at it.
