Can We Live Forever By Mind Uploading?
Everybody dies…right? What if we can take the very essence of what we call “self,” our mind, personality, memories and attributes, translate that into patterns of data and upload it into a digital housing? Does that mean we can live forever through mind uploading?
Data philosopher and wonder junkie Jason Silva muses that we might soon have an alternative to one of the two certainties of life. Through technology and mind uploading, he supposes we can achieve a sort of digital immortality and death might no longer be an inevitability. Quite the thought right? Living forever. I guess we’ll have to ping Jason on whether data can soon take off the other certainty—taxes.
