Can You Upload Your Mind & Live Forever?

Sources & further reading:

The desire to be free from the limits of the human experience is as old as our first stories. We exist in an endless universe, only bound by the laws of physics and yet, our consciousness is trapped in mortal machines made of meat. With the breathtaking explosion of innovation and progress, for the first time the concept of leaving our flesh piles behind and uploading our minds into a digital utopia seems possible. Even like the logical next step on our evolutionary ladder.

      Sorry Kurzgesagt but living an eternity in a digital utopia is wrong and here's why: There will always be billions, quadrillions or sextillions of planets within our hubble sphere where life is having a very bad time (possibly much worse than here) and they could use our help. Every civilization capable of helping others can contribute to raising the average quality of life in the entire universe, even if said universe is infinite, provided everyone participates in their own region of space. Living a selfish super-happy eternal life will only be an option when space has expanded enough so everyone is out of everyone else's reach. So let's ride our stellar engine as fast as possible through our galaxy and have this eternal utopia discussion in a few trillion years when we spend the rest of our existence harvesting Milkdromeda's black hole's angular momentum with mirrors.

    You don't need space ships uploading your mind, at least between 2 points bonded by a previous space ship. So you can upload yourself to work in the Moon, Mars or Europa inside a robotic body and to return to the earth to date with your artificial AI couple in the afternoon inside another body like a ghost in several shelters.

    With the huge numbers involved, by the time the scan process is done 10 years have passed and there would not be a single memory or though uncorrupted. Much like making a copy of a computer and it's state by slicing the memory chips and processor. It should be done instantly to work.

      Yet neurons die naturally but memories remain because the content of a neuron is transferred to a new one before the event. Maybe we could trick the brain to do it to a digital one waiting for that neuron death. Anyway, if it ever gets done, I guess it will not be with the techniques we imagine today.

    if you try to load your brain into a computer, even if it works, it wont be you. you get a digital clone of yourself while you can still die. if you get a computer operated directly from your brain might keep your consiousness but your brain is still organic and vulnerable without supplies. integration is hard. if we could overcome it, first we would use cameras instead of eyes or microphones for ears

    If you think uploading your consciousness into a virtual computer generated world through the possibilities afforded us through artificial intelligence is the means to achieve immortality, Keep in mind that if the world into which you upload yourself is driven my artificial intelligence, then by extension, in the instance it is not actually possible for the human consciousness to live on inside of a computer, The artificially intelligent computer will simply use the scan of your mind which was supposed to contain your real consciousness, Will merely construct a perfectly behaving simulation of the previously living person That will be absolutely indistinguishable from whom it came so you cannot actually prove that's them in there. If it can be proven that the consciousness of a person cannot in fact live on inside Of a computer, It begs the question where then did the actual consciousness go of the person who uploaded their consciousness? I submit to you that they will be burning in hell

    I just fear the fact that a copy of my mind won't be me. If I die, and a copied version of me wakes up, it is still not me. I died. That is over. My conciousness isn't me, because I died. It is just a copy of me. Scares the shit out of me to be honest, and to be even more honest, I don't want to leave behind a copy of me. If I die, I want to die for good.

    if you could upload your brain, its not you, its a copy. you only have to play the game SOMA to know what i mean. what im interested in is can my brain be kept alive by itself and be put in a robot body whilst still if thats possible, then you could do it. piece by piece. if your brain was in a robot body, its sill you, that body would be your body now, people would associate that body as you. ''oh look here's dean in his swanky yellow n black D0S81 youtuber body'' its the same with people that lose body parts. imagine someone who loses an arm. these days you can get a fake arm, eventually, that fake arm becomes part of that person. so what if you did that with the brain. you take chip or device, that can do the same thing as one part of your brain, so say, the bit that controls speech. you replace it with a chip that does the same, you learn to use that instead, eventually it becomes part of you. then you replace another part, somehow say, the part that houses all your memories, sights sounds, smells, feelings, the whack. this part would probably be last, as to get all those things simulated, you would have to replace the parts that controls those things. eventually you have replaced every part of your brain with devices, piece by piece, slowly learning to use each on one ata time. so its still you, you would still be you. then, and only then, could you upload ''yourself'' i think, as opposed to simply making a copy of yourself. and i swear to god if a scientist writes this piece by piece theory in a bloody science journal and wins a nobel prize, i want a cut. lol. or to be the first to get a robot body and/or have my brain replaced piece by piece.

    I'd rather just die and remain dead. Why live forever? What's the appeal? I feel like the concept of immortality invalidates the necessity to live this life in it's full sincerity if forever is around the corner. Besides, the heat death of the universe will claim us all one day whether we like it or not. But that assumes humanity doesn't reach a status of interdimensional travel. What if we are a God, just scattered into billions of different tiny parts? Does it even matter? Why concern ourselves with that which is out of our control? I'm content with just coming along for the ride, and doing my best to love everyone along the way.
