I'm new to your little forum, and wanted to add something to your discussion.
-If anything is unclear or simply wrong, in terms of language it is most certainly the cause of "the language barrier" (I'm german)
-If anything is unclear or wrong, in terms of logic or common sense, it is probably caused by my lack of intelligence.
(Is it allowed to use smileys in a philosophical/scientific discussion?)
Well, what are people afraid of, when they say they're afraid of "dying"?... I don't know!
But I know what I
am afraid of, when I say that I'm afraid of dying:
The possibility, that all my thinking and my consciousness stop and not the fact, that my memories or my feeling "get lost"
Having a exact duplicate of my mind would actually carry on for me and do things that I was not able to achieve in my life and spread my ideals.
Isn't that what a child does?
I know that it would be more, and I know that it would behave exactly as I would, but it would not BE
My thinking and consciousness would stop the nanosecond my brain stops "working" and that is what I'm afraid of.
That said, I don't think it is impossible to reach omortality that way, but you would have to be able to, kind of link the brain to the artificial brain and slowly transfer the whole parts and functions one after another, while still being able to interact with the already transferred bits.
If or how it would be possible is beyond my understanding of that matter.
Well, I don't know if anyone will reply, cause the last post was a while ago, but I really hope so.
P.S.: I love the story, really...I love it.
P.P.S: I just read through my post and saw that it sounds a little bit stupid.
Well, I've never been a good writer.
