The Technology Singularity is closer that you think and it is clear that humanity is ill equipped to handle the ethical and philosophical questions we will face. This video highlights several issues that will surround digitizing and uploading consciousness. A huge question still remains unanswered, what is consciousness? Where does it reside and how do we replicate this inside a computer? Who will have copyright authority over our thoughts?
I find the idea of consciousness upload fascinating and when it becomes a reality I will gladly participate. However, until the first consciousness is uploaded and turned on, we will be forced into the darkest depths of speculation. Can our individual consciousness exist in superposition? I personally want to be uploaded AND I want to explore the “afterlife” if consciousness does continue after bodily death. Can we be “trans-immortalized?”
What do you think? Would you upload your consciousness, if it is possible?
