If you are referring to me actually no, I'm not Japanese but I do appreciate the feedback and no I did not know that this language was phonetic and that I was talking in this manner interesting. I take time to try and explain my topics it takes a lot of time and research, but I feel that everyone deserves to be informed about events current or non-current. I dedicate most of my free time to study I have a entire thread on (things that make me think) side note (not all of the information I share on that thread I have read) it is compiled of things I have either watched, read or would like to research. I am also in the process of making a entire thread on Cern there is a lot of new and strange things happening in this day and age, I wish to keep people informed and analyze how others feel about the subject going on. Thank you again for your feedback it is greatly appreciated what do you guys think should I make a thread on Cern? do you think others would show interest in this topic? let me know in threadI almost completely agree with @Finished actually. Im also a programmer, or used to be.
But a lesser one, as he mentioned so much code is prefabricated and ready to use without understanding now.
I also think you should watch the movie "Snowden" if youre concerned with privacy. Even if you arent using internet, there are so many ways they can track everything.
Also agree that it will take a very long time for certain technological advancements to be feasible. Cloud computing i consider extremely unreliable for something like processing consciousness lol.
I dont know much at all about brain tissue being used to interface with tech, i am aware of it but never gave it much thought.
But yes i do think we can see synthetic organs being possible by 2045. They have been quite successful in thier experiments with that.
Also are you maybe Japanese? Your english is excellent and easily understandable, but you sometimes write phonetically. And thats a very phonetic language.
I'm interested in all possibilities, if you can share with me maybe in a pm, I would love to hear your point of view. I do understand that most others are not interested in the subjects I study have you hurd of string theory? what are your opinions on this subject? do you entertain this concept if so why if not why? It's fascinating to me (my opinion) but I respect if others don't agree, how many dimensions do you believe exist? Again, you don't have to share that here if you wish to keep your belief anonymous you can pm me if not, I completely understand if you wish not to share, I appreciate you either way.No im sorry, but almost no one will show interrst in quantum mechanics. Its basically space magic, or simply just magic to almost everyone.
People have called me insane over lesser things than my claims that i can force reality to manifest in certain ways ironically ignoring reality itself to dismiss my claim.
No one understands. But you cant blame them, it does seem like magic. But they also dismiss things as simple and widely understood as time travel as insanity. Its obvious that very few are interested in these things.
I appreciate your time and response, it is a very interesting subject to me perhaps you could even explain the levels over the 11th dimensional (M-Theory) to me in more detail when you are able to pm me because I would love to hear how this dimension could possibly be eclipsed by another dimensional theory it sounds really interesting can't wait take care friend.I will PM you maybe tomorrow, maybe tonight
These things do also fascinate me. But not as much as they once did.
I'm not caught up on this thread; but, I'll chime in on the original topic.
I don't see anything exciting or interesting, for the most part, about consciousness transfer from carbon based to silicon transistor based.
Take a simple thought experiment for example. Let's say that Star Trek style teleportation exists. Let's say you are being teleported from the Earth to a space station; but, there is a malfunction, and your previous self, on Earth, doesn't get de-materialized. Now there are two exact copies of your, 'self.' There is one, now on the space station, and another, back on Earth. Which, 'you,' is the real you, now?
If that were to happen, you wouldn't suddenly have 4 eyes, 4 legs, and 4 arms, whith each pair being in separate places. The, 'you,' you feel yourself to be, wouldn't have two bodies, in two separate places. There would be nothing connecting the second you, to your, 'self.' So, this is no different, than if, while living, your consciousness was transferred, to a computer. The new you, in the machine, would be you; but, it also wouldn't be you, at all. So the, 'you,' that you take yourself to be, whether that actually exists at all, certainly would still die, experience death, and cease to exist beyond your death. Your digital counter-part, yes, may live on; but, that wouldn't be the, 'continuity of you,' that will go on to die in biological form. The moment you are cloned, whether completely, or patterned into a machine, there is a continuity break.
thank you for giving your detailed response to add more to this topic, I always appreciate the feedback its help me to think in new and unusual ways, where to begin I will take this piece by piece so that I may try to fill you in on the topic as it progresses. There are currently 3 ways that this technology might happen in the near future, whether this company makes progress in these fields I am going to list by the year 2045 is the question Finished and Anarchic believe that this technology will not meet this deadline due to lack of advancement in the technological fields in question: AI, SBI, and even full holographical integration (which I don't count as are own consciousness for obvious reasons, but the researchers of project 2045 count as consciousness transfer.) You seem well informed so I will assume you already know about these technologies if not I have added the information in the thread on these topics in question. Yes, I agree that transference of consciousness is not a thing without its own ramifications, who's to say it is your true consciousness or a computer simulated consciousness (we don't know and cannot rule out that there could me malicious intent to alter your programming of course there's that possibility.)
Now SBI on the other hand is your brain matter transferred into a robotic body (a cyborg) this notion has bin tested and has actually surpassed AI, in the ability to learn and is at this moment still being research and developed. (Can there also be tampering with the system, of course anything computer related has backdoors that can be hacked) but this system seems to be more possible and will most likely be available around the deadline that they seek (possibly). If their intention is to transfer actual consciousness this would more than likely fit the criteria of human/robotic integration since it is, you brain matter. To add this would also Implement the possibility of being able to interphase with objects like computers, robots, cars, phones, other users through (telepathic technological integration) the possibilities are infinite.
This has not bin covered, and I thank you for bringing it up, this is whats known as Hive Mind technology, its bin seen in sci-fi and in nature, could also become a possibility in the future. The concept is to take multiple consciousnesses and transfer them into a singular entity thus making them one being, the only thing is that the personalities are melted together to become one entity. This theory is also disturbing but can also be possible due to peoples interest in connecting with others via social media they are currently evaluating this notion that if we wish to connect with one another to a extreme in these ways what's to say that we cannot intergrade into a collective consciousness (Hive Mind) this can have drastic ramifications either for the better or for the worse it also begs the question who's consciousness would be the model for this structure? I did not wish to bring up the topic of this possibility because then others who already think these notions are crazy but in theory it is a possibility. I have not hurd any evidence yet that this type of technology is being researched and developed so for the sake of not getting into conspiracy theory I will not confirm nor deny the possibility of the (Hive Mind theory) because I have no solid evidence that it is in trails or being tested. But if anyone wants to know what this theory is that we are talking about I will link a video on the topic added to this post after.What does sound interesting to me, however, is, imagining a group of say 2 to 4 humans, who volunteer to have their consciousnesses merged with a single ego, that has control over all of them. You would have 8 eyes, 4 pairs, in separate locations. You would exist, as a single entity, in 4 different spatial locales, at any given time. I don't think any human could come close to imagining what that would be like, and I don't think such a being could be considered human. This will be possible in a cybernetic future, that, I don't think is actually that far off.
As for immortality... I think the important question to ponder is, 'what does your, 'you,' really consist of?' I tend to think our sense of self, isn't really real. I think it's real in the way sound is real, or light is real; but, sound and light don't really exist. Sound and light don't have mass. They are emergent properties of matter interacting with itself. A pool of water may have waves; but, the waves aren't physical and material, the way the water is, they are just something the water is collectively, 'doing.' So, as waves, sound waves, and light waves are, 'happenings.' I think our sense of self, our ego, is a, 'happening.' It's the bouncing of a ball, that we may be pointing to; but, it isn't the ball, directly.
Godlike immortality, would be an interesting thing for any being to experience, I think. In my mind, whether in this Universe, or some other Universe, I think such an experience would like to play itself out, probably in multiple different ways. However, as for my, 'self,' I think a truly godlike immortal being, would eventually, at some point, want to die. So, if immortality does exist, I find it highly unlikely, that any being that was capable of it, and would want to experience it. Long life, maybe, we, as individual human beings, might be interested in. I'm not so sure about infinite life though. Life and death form a duality. So I'm not sure true immortality would really be life at all.
