Your magic could turn off, and you would hate that, but you would still be you. You would still be alive to regret it.

Even if the laws of the universe change on me, so that all my knowledge is void, I'll just figure out the new laws, as has been done before. It's not a Muggle thing, it's a human thing, it just refines and trains the power you use every time you look at something you don't understand and ask 'Why?"
Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
