The Strange Neuroscience of Immortality | Global Brain | Scoop.it

Inside researcher Kenneth Hayworth of Harvard University is quoted in The Chronicle Review:

 

"The human race is on a beeline to mind uploading: We will preserve a brain, slice it up, simulate it on a computer, and hook it up to a robot body."

 

Chronicle continues, "He wants that brain to be his brain. He wants his 100 billion neurons and more than 100 trillion synapses to be encased in a block of transparent, amber-colored resin—before he dies of natural causes.

 

Why? Ken Hayworth believes that he can live forever.

 

But first he has to die."
