    Techno-faith is still faith. Don't wait for the Singularity / AI-Jesus to solve all your problems, because it's probably not going to happen. I don't want to be a downer, but this whole "transhumanism" thingy is, at best, a waste of hope.

    Oh, I believe transhumanism is happening at some point in the future if we don't exterminate ourselves.
    Gene-tweaked or cybernetically enhanced people is just a matter of time from becoming reality.
    Uploading/uplifting into machine minds on the other hand, sort of doubt it'll happen any time soon, we'd first need to learn how the human brain works, then replicate it technologically, then make brain pattern scanners with sufficient fidelity and resolution to scan the candidate brain, and then map it accurately to the target.

    I'm not saying that technology won't improve anymore, but even the most promising "transhuman" techs are still far from being in scifi territory yet. My real problem with this whole thing is the idea that the Singularity will happen any day from now and we'll all become gods forever.
    Brain uploading needs some sort of weird mind/body dualism to work. Basically, it only works if there is an immaterial soul to transfer from your body to some computer. If there's only the brain, then once there's no more brain, you're dead, end of the story.

    I see no reason why it can't work. They're already 3D printing nerves, so all you'd need is a blueprint of your brain to copy and paste it. Also if we could understand the brain that well we could probably make emulation software to replicate it's effects of consciousness.

    Cool, that sounds like a great idea.
    The next board meeting is in a week remind me and I'll put in my recommendation.
    I will need you to send over a resume, post a pic in the yearbook and mostly go fuck yourself.

    That would only end up with a copy of you, not you becoming an all-powerful computer goddess like it's advertised. Your own subjective experience would end with your brain, because your consciousness is your brain. This article summarized the whole thing better than I could, if you're interested.
