We disapear into nothing. That's why I'm downloading all my memories first.
Seriously, there is a German researcher who says that whithin 10 years it will be possible to download memories from the human brain and upload them into some sort of storage. This is the closest to immortality that we will get, as entropy dictates that cells will break down and die and that the human body will last only so long. The big question then becomes the one of consciousness. Because we don't understand the phenonomenon of consciousness hardly at all, i don't hold out much hope that mankind, in this generation at least, will ever devise a way top make these memories self-aware.
Of course, if my body gave out and they could download my entire brain, I would like them to just upload it into someone who is not using theirs, like George Bush.
:rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: Green Day's 'American Idiot' springs to mind on the topic of Bush, I believe he inspired the lyrics.
we never come back...........
What do you believe happens? Do you not believe people's stories of their near death experience? A three year old boy had one, he met his grandmother there who sent him back to the land of the living. A child that age would have no reason or even ability to make up something that detailed.
