Nothing but Gnosticism; it won't work. The human brain and mind are not two separate things, and they cannot be divided. Besides, I've lost too many important files to computer crashes to trust my soul to Bill Gates.Nebelpfade said:Not too far into it yet, but mostly focuses on immortality of the consciousness (also calls it our soul). Advances in parallel computing could allow our consciousness to be free of the limitations of our organic brains, ushering in not only an age of exponentially increasing intelligence, creativity and memory retention but also a non-DNA-based immortality of humanity. It is definitely interesting in light of Prof. Stephen Hawking's Life in the Universe lecture which discusses the possibility of mechanical lifeforms replacing DNA-based life.Pilgrim said:That sounds interesting to say the least. What does he say about future immortality?
That said, the Trekkie in me is desperately looking for a real-life Dr. Soong.
