Actually, no. Unless you can find a way around c, bandwidth between any interstellar colony and Earth will be severely limited.


Sorry I missed this one: This is why I stated earlier we need to find a FTL-ish method of travel.

I'd be happy with a math co-processor thankyou very much.

Though, again, you're demonstrably wrong, since you're surrounded by transhumans.


Eh? I haven't seen people who uploaded their conciousness into computers to live forever yet. Dang, I must be out of the loop.

Re: The Earth is uninhabitable
So your argument is "because we haven't done it yet that means it will never be done"?

No, it means: "I don't belive it will ever be done, but even if it does, it will be a total waste and won't work like some people hope it will work."

Everyone is assuming that our technology will remain wholly digital in nature when in all likelyhood we'll end up with a combination of the two as biotechnology matures.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

Re: The Earth is uninhabitable
Still doesn't matter. A copy is a copy. It's not you, it's a copy of you.

You don't lie down on a table, go to sleep, and wake up in a computer.

You lie down on a table, go to sleep, and wake up with a copy of you on a computer. Then you die and your existance ends. THE END.
From your POV nothing changes.

The You2 is not you, won't be you and won't even really think it's you, cause it's knows it's a copy. That knowledge by itself may even be enough to throw it into a existential crisis.

You know this how?


Personally one of the more interesting proposals I've heard is to design a kind of nanite that can replicate the function of a neuron. Then once inside the body it will seek out the brain, then latch onto the neurons effectively replacing them as well as allowing for a (theoretically) seemless transition to an artificial brain.
