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 will never be able to live forever by uploading yourself to a computer. your biological body would still die, the "mind" left in the computer is just a copy. you would still die. think this way if you upload yourself to a computer but manage to also live in your biological body at the same time, would you have one life in two environment. or would the second "mind" live independently from you. if the second option is true then yourself cant never actually live forever. doesnt matter if you upload yourself to a machine or not you "YOU" would still die one day.

  • One concept I haven't seen discussed is what happens to your present self (brain and consciousness) even if this was successful. You're essentially copying yourself so your current self will perish no matter what.

  • I’d definitely want to experience a life like simulation of dinosaurs where I can actually interact with it and even get eaten with no danger of dying. Imagine just being able to turn off your ears when you need some quiet time or code your body to automate certain tasks everyday so that when you "wake up" all you have to do is whatever you want. I wouldn’t want us to necessarily have capabilities of a computer for instance if you wanted to play a game of chess with a friend, it’d be no fun as it’s the same turns every time. I’d want to master a whole bunch of skills and you’d likely even be able to change your appearance as well as even change your voice and maybe even taste buds. Having complete mastery of your biology and mind would also allow you to rapidly develop new technology and maybe even create a biological 3d printer so you could print things like truffles or the best steaks. Although if you were able to control your mind you might even be able to fire the right neutrons in order to trigger the feeling/taste of a food at any given moment.

  • There's no further human stupidness and "be small" feeling when we try to compare our brain to a computer. This is what I call sun humanism which comes from the fact we put ourselves under human levels and not above human existence. Into a binary code level a smartest of amoeba. This is why in the uploading process we lose what we want to save in the first place from dying OUR OWN SOUL!

I doubt YOU yourself would be the one living forever, but rather an AI that it's an exact copy of yourself, you will just die and this double that spawned from you will live on, but you as a person will no longer exist, it is although an exact copy, a completely separate person who remains.

  • Even if we get to the point where we can upload minds, we would still never be qble to experience it. From our perspective we would sit down, get scanned, and go ablut the rest of our natural lives. Meanwhile the scanned simulation is now a completely different separate. We'd never know what it feels like to be them.

  • I think it would be cheaper to live "in fast forward" than to live "in realtime". In fast forward, you could essentially have the same storage costs of your brain, but save on the computing costs side and pause that for a bit.

  • It's not so much a question of "Can you" but "When will you be able to". If you're a child today, you might stand a chance of living long enough to get your brain uploaded. If you're an aging person above 80, probably not. Everyone in ages in between, it just depends on how fast we put the gas pedal to the floor. Basically, is this sort of thing going to be a priority by governments and corporations, or an afterthought?

  • I think one day we will be able to upload a consciousness (or create one) in the digital realm or the future equivalent to it (I don't believe we will be stuck in binary computing forever). The problem is I do not believe we can transfer a consciousness. The person would still exist though in meatspace as it were while a digital copy of their personality and memories goes about and does whatever digital people would do. A cool thing that might be able to happen though is if transfer to a computer is possible, then transfer from a computer should be possible too. In this way, you could go into suspended animation, have a digital copy of yourself work out a problem,visit some cool star systems, whatever, and then upload the memories of your digitized self back into your meat self to "experience" what you did; and for all intents and purposes, it would have been you doing it anyway. ***Warning: Might lead to loss of sanity***
