    I've heard mind upload will be possible in 2045 but I am curious: How would this work ? Would you upload your mind like into a super desktop. What would happen to your sexuality ? Your memories ? Your thoughts ? could you leave any part of your mind you chose behind ? How would this work where would you awake ? Would it be like VR ?

    There is no way you could upload information. Its not uploading... read about.

    - Singularity Theory
    - Quantum Computer
    - Neural Networks Transmitters


    None of this is science yet.. its just speculation and philosophy. I wouldn't even call it theory, there is very very little data actually that supports any of this, and its only because our science is not up to parr. There is too many things we don't understand that we need to understand until we can actually mimic a system like this.

    @newuser - this and your other thread If consciousness is a function of neurons ? make me think you'd be interested in my thread - What is it in the body that makes it alive? I hope you will have a look.
    And what does the Lord require of you but to love justice, to be merciful and to walk humbly with Him?

    What little real science this idea is based on is in its infancy. Your quess is as good as anyone else's. However every act of communication is an attempt to "upload" an idea.

    As a Neuroscientist to be, I get frustrated that we can't really help people with Neurological Disorders. Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, MS, CTE,.. its just devastating.

    NewUser, why don't you major in Neuroscience if your this interested. You can than maybe go into Neural Engineering or NeuroPhyiscs like myself and do whatever academia will grant you to do . You may be the Einstein of Neuroscience one day.

    Here's a better question why? If you are dead and all that is left is a computer with your thoughts in it, who cares? There wouldn't be any feelings or emotions as examples so "you" wouldn't be aware of much and who "you" are.

    Yeah. Wouldn't uploading all your thoughts into a computer program be the equivalent to writing them into a telephone-book sized volume? Then what? Who's going to read it? Why would they? Even if it was arranged that if they wanted to know how you were doing, they had instructions to turn to page 18647 for the appropriate reply?
