Many futurists predict that one day we'll upload our minds into computers, where we'll romp around in virtual reality environments. That's possible — but there are still a number of thorny issues to consider.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
Well, just at the corner, voilà, here are the counter-arguments...:-))) At the end of the day - at least for now - my vote is for the sceptic... it is not only the intuition (the most part is and I just search arguments for that...:-))) that's how "rationality" works BTW...:-))) but also the fact that I believe that we are thinking as we are, with our whole body and not separately by our brain... It's also said that all of our decisions has a basic emotional element, we can not think, decide cold, without emotion... and while emotions are also not excluded from the brain functions they are rather a whole body phenomenon... Then comes the consciousness (and what about sub-consciousness, it's also said/researched that our "operation's drives" are mostly the "products" of our subconscious what might be also more than just our brain... Than we might have - among lots of others - Thomas Metzinger's theory ("Being no one...", etc.) about not having a fixed memory, data structures, "ego" but rather an algorythm-production "software" (?)... So, speculations can run still in every possible directions... and that's why we are human: we can speculate...:-))) Th
