Serious mind uploading researchers have emerged recently, taking this seemingly science-fictional notion seriously and pursuing it via experimental and theoretical research programs, Goertzel and Ilke’ note. At the request of KurzweilAI, the publishers have kindly made both the Introduction and the first paper by Koene, Fundamentals Of Whole Brain Emulation: State, Transition And Update Representations, open access, available in full text on the International Journal of Machine Consciousness website.
July 6, 2012 by Kaziel The much needed technology is a fully developed brain-computer-interface. July 4, 2012 by Editor OK, cool, a whole new concept: downloading!
July 6, 2012 by KingBrandonM If God exists i would prefer to go to Hell, it seems like a much more enjoyable place tbh. July 6, 2012 by GPtest Testing comments with an alt (this is Giulio). It is ironic to me that people are so afraid of uploading when that is exactly what will stop our daily practice of dying. July 2, 2012 by Chris Can we get a higher-res version of the illustration please? June 27, 2012 by Bri Since the post have stopped, I guess it’s safe to write some more. You can say the same about tomorrow’s version of you (the person who will wake up in your bed tomorrow). The previous ones were like slightly dumb and ignorant versions of me, less and less as you get closer to now, and the coming ones will be, while physically deteriorating (not that much for a few decades since I eat right and exercise) mentally awesomer and awesomer, hopefully until the very end. June 27, 2012 by Opspersec A summary of the actual technological steps forward (engineering, science) presented in this issue would be nice for those of us who prefer that sort of thing. Maybe it is physically impossible to copy a mind without destroying the original at the same time though, so that at any instant in time there can only be ONE mind with that particular subjective perspective that supervenes on the mind. June 26, 2012 by Bri With a name like snake I can see you have fangs. June 26, 2012 by Bri As I said, even radical upgrade would result in continuity.
July 18, 2012 by Sonhouse I think you are absolutely correct and our advances will dwarf anything we can conceive now, from our very limited points of view.
June 26, 2012 by iterator Wow, so many ignore the process by which we’ve allowed machines greater access into our existence.
June 26, 2012 by John Doe I would imagine that if I were to replace a single neuron in my head with an artificial neuron, that I would retain the same level of consciousness, and that if this process repeated, I would continue to be aware. Maybe due to the complexity of the brain (the interaction of hormones etc) it will result in a pure neuronal simulation being incomplete, and we would transfer our minds into a state of incompleteness, but that is to prejudice the ability for us to simulate even the immensely complex interactions of our brain in its brain soup. June 26, 2012 by aus You can do a simple thought experiment to determine if mind uploading will result in immortality. Say you did a non-destructive upload to a computer, that is your memories are uploaded to the computer but your brain is left intact and perfectly functioning in your skull.
So you wake up from this uploading procedure and you have a conversation with the computer.
June 27, 2012 by Alex I see your argument as unfinished or at least half. Ok so finally you discover that you lost a physical body and are in the process of evaluating your experience in compairing it with what you used to feel when you had a “real Biological body” and you say things like i wonder what people think of me now that i am the fake me ?
June 27, 2012 by MatthewQ Your physical meat body would continue on the downward trajectory of decrepitude and die- of course. The scenario you mention of waking up and having the conversation with yourself is a very interesting point but it also contains a bit of the answer. I think it would not be so bad having yourself as a companion for the rest of your days when viewed in this liight. June 26, 2012 by Matthew Fuller Thank you, thanks, and thank you for the quick peak. However, smart persons have been discussing this for decades, and will probably continue for other decades, until mind uploading will be operational routine, at which point I think the metaphysical doubts will disappear like a snowflake in the sun.
Re reading the papers, note that “Editor Ben Goertzel has also gathered links to informal, “preprint” versions of the papers in this Special Issue, hosted on the paper authors’ websites.
Of course hypothetical techniques such as non-destructive uploading and synthetic cell replacement further complicate this issue.

It comes as no surprise that some people believe that if you change your mind, then you must have lied in the first place. It seems to me that changing your mind, or opening to other possibilities can be frowned upon. Or, I might make a choice or decision today, and find that a week on Tuesday, when I’ve got different information to hand I want to make a new decision.

Would You Like Access To A Free Visual Poster That Will Help You Achieve Your Goals?Now Downloaded Over 50,000 Times!"Your mind maps gave me the big picture about many topics. Koene (a contributor of two papers to this volume) has formed a nonprofit organization called Carbon Copies (carboncopies.org) to promote mind uploading research. These preprint versions are not guaranteed to be identical to the final published versions, but the content should be essentially the same, he advises. Once this is figured out, the rest should be relatively fast-forward, since the basic framework for brain emulation is already available, but strangely ignored. I’m using it as a desktop wallpaper, I have a 1080p monitor, and it looks ugly with bitmap scaling.
But even in older age, you may reconfigure your mind so profoundly in just a few years (or days or less?) that versions from just a few thousand days ago seem alien. Then it could be that i AM the computer once my mind gets uploaded to it and the manifestation of my mind as a brain perishes at the same time that it is copied. We’ll look back in 100 years and giggle at how simple we were, just as we look back today at 100 years ago.
We’ve come a long way from sharpened rock, to wooden teeth, to artificial hearts, and now artificial ears and eyes. What’s crucial is that the pattern of action potential is maintained, as it is this massively parallel dynamic process that gives rise to consciousness I think.
Your mind would have also been uploaded to a new substrate and continue in the this format too.
I think your original meat body would still go through a lot of the normal anxieties about mortality and death. If so, once you upload thoughts and memories, you upload also consciousness, whatever that is.
That is that a computer that uploads your mind may have your memories and thoughts, but not your consciousness. A This has been worrying me for a while and I thought I’d share some thoughts on it and would love if you could pitch in too. A There might be a judgement placed upon the person who finds that what they once thought they wanted is no longer what they want. A It’s impossible to make a decision about something today and post it forward to be made a week on Tuesday. A And unless I’m very mistaken, breath is the one thing which determines whether or not you are living! In order for me to make decisions I like to gather information, feedback, ideas and questions. A A lie is not the same as changing your mind, or not achieving what you set out to achieve. I was able to understand how things were connected… things that you learned in 20 years in like one day. Olympics gonna get nuked in a month then ww3 starts and then it’s only a matter of months, not years.


Besides, Heaven is filled past the brim with people i hate, why would i want to spend eternity there?
The difference in subjective perspective becomes very evident if you think of the version of you that existed 30 years ago, or will exist in 30 years. Maybe the subjective perspective gets preserved then, but i think there is no way to ever verify this from a third perspective.
Why does it not occur to some that a new substrate should take over as portions of the old substrate are either disabled or made obsolete. A The decision you make today may be to delay making a decision till a week on Tuesday but it isn’t the decision. A Only when I gather them all together, answer the questions which are usually posed, do I then become clear enough to make a choice.
The Mind Map is also used to demonstrate how to draw a Mind Map from start to finish which can be viewed at the Blog Post below. All of the worlds FreeThinkers, Intellectuals, Visionaries, all my friends, and almost everyone i idolize are going to Hell according to most Christians so obviously thats the place to be. A That means that even with a crystal ball determining your outcome, you still have decisions to make at every moment of every day.
A Interestingly by opening myself in this way, some people think that I’ve already made a decision and they get confused by my subsequent choice! Personally im Atheist, formerly Caholic until i read the bible and realized its complete and utter BS. To move from one substrate to another while maintaining a coherent consciousness, you must iteratively replace the old susbstrate with the new, until all that remains is the new. A I believe that as long as you remember it’s A the learnings along the way which create your experiences and your life, you can change your mind as often as is needed to be the happy you!
Now i am a Biotechnology major in my first year of college and i hope to become a Synthetic Biologist and work in the field of Genetic Enineering, i am hoping to participate in the process of improving mankind.
I’m not suggesting that uploading your mind would be a simple process by any means, but it is not impossible. I personally cannot wait until the Rapture, so you guys can finally leave me alone, if Jesus doesnt come for you soon, im calling a cab. The problem with faith is that you dont truly know, with science you do know and if your wrong you have the luxury of changing your beliefs, in religion you dont have that luxury, its infallible even in the face of blatant contradicting evidence to the contrary, you just shut your eyes and pretend it isnt there, we look at the evidence and if it supports it we accept it, if it doesnt we dont.
The Skeptic web site is real, but it wouldn’t let me apply for the million dollar prize.
Later, as I was in the bathroom, I had that feeling like an elevator drop, and I saw more clearly the area that I would be stopped.
It’s relatively easy to project extensions of my spirit, but it is firmly bound to my body. It was on the way to my job site, one block before I would turn of merrick Rd in Masapequa.
As I got into my van, it hit me again, but this time I could see it as if I were within that block. As I turned on to Merrick Rd I could see a cop car, pulled over to the side, with it’s lights on. If you live for a thousand more years in the future, then you have’nt met yourself till you have those experiences. It strikes me very plainly that even though it hasn’t happened in our time frame, it still has happened already.
I have avoided several car accidents because I moved out of the way of an accident that I witnessed in front of me up the road before it happened.
It may be hard for me to tell you something to convince you of the truth I’m telling.
