I don't know. The question of self is a hard one. I would not, because I would like my consciousness, as in the one that I control (a little recursive, but you get the point) to be alive, and because that other me is another distinct set of atoms, and therefore my neurons don't control him. So I would say no

There might not be such a thing as "distinct set of atoms" on fundamental level and even if it does, the atoms/molecules in constellation that constitutes you are turned over all the time. In short you in 5 sec do not consist of the same set of atoms at present you. Does that make you think that 5 sec you is not really you?
