      Okay, how do you upload it? Let's assume you have a computer, doesn't even have to be digital, with the ability to perfectly replicate or simulate the brain's workings, what is the integration point to assure that you as a thinking conscieous being will continue to think and be conscieous as your current squishy meat brain is cut off from life support?
      >Inb4 afterlife
      entering the afterlife doesn't count, you would need to figure out how to continue to be conscieous in this world specifically, a replica of you living on doesn't count.

        nta but replicating all the brain's functions related to neurons and connections. perfectly scan the brain at whatever resolution and replicate it with other hardware, such that it functions the same, as activity goes. before activating it, after copying all info, kill the bio body and start the artificial brain. if this happens to you it will be like closing your eyes in bio body and waking up in synthetic one. it's really that simple. that's what I personally think will be the case, supposing we get to tech level necessary to pull it off of-course.

            It's literally impossible to do what you're talking about, and it is logically impossible. This is the Law of Identity, a thing cannot be both itself and something else at the same time. How is this other you also you if you are you? You don't need to define "what we actually are" because what you're saying is logically incoherent. Not even taking into account it is physically impossible; the other you exists separately in time and space, which automatically makes it "not you". Part of "you" is your position in spacetime, another you cannot exist perfectly layered over yourself.

            I give the scientific support with the position point. A part of "you" is "where" and "when", so the fact that you cannot exist in the same spacial and temporal position as anything but yourself means the Law has support in science. Only way out of this would be asserting identical multiverses, which has zero support.
            >doesn't work that way. you need to tie it to something unique, which is the collection of info. that can be captured.

            This isn't "I say so", these are the logical rules which underpin math and science. If we can't even coherently discuss the topic because it fails against fundamental logical rules, it's obviously not going to be something that can be captured with science because logically impossible shit doesn't exist.

            Your first mistake is identifying yourself with your body. Your self is the experience of your body, so when you're dreaming, you're experiencing your body sleeping. In that experience time and space play by different rules, because your brain is not viewing any outside information (time and space are stable when the light source is stable, when you're asleep there's no light source and thus no time, only space)

            well clearly location but apart from being in a different place they seem to "work" the same.
            you do know you are going "you are not possible without your particular set of atoms" which is just a fuzzy cloud in continuous exchange with the environment. you are not so well defined, from second to second.
            to me it looks like you are forced to take this position so other stuff you think about things still makes sense, because you personally favor that narrative and view of the world. your denial of what can happen is a consequence, not the result of scientific thinking. it's trying to forcefully fit something in that would support your other views. and you're willing to argue that it's possible atoms are individually unique and they uniquely define you and you are not possible with any other atoms apart from those particular ones, exactly them. that's kind of out there. there's people with missing limbs which still seem to be them. good bit of atoms missing and nothing seems to change, apart from the obvious mental ones.

            well yes functionally, I'm not aware of anything which would say replacing one atom with another changes anything. anything at all. you still have the same object, functionally, transistor gate, whatever application.
            if I perfectly build a few identical transistors they will all occupy a different place in space but will function identically, interchangeable. there's nothing differentiating them apart from location.
            what about atoms which are not yet in my body but will be? say I drink a beer. think all of the atoms that are going to be part of me are out there spread out and if I somehow miss one beer that I should have drank (for whatever reason) I suddenly lose my identity? is this some destiny bullshit?

            I am every bit my body, if an aspect of my body was removed, then it would affect the total sum of my conscious state, which includes but is not limited to direct mental awareness, my potential to commit motion is every bit myself, and altercations to those fundamental actions are irrevocably changing my core behaviors. It is because of my body that I am allowed to be conscious, and clearly all information about my consciousness is encoded within that physical body, and this process is entirely individualistic. If this were not the case, we wouldn't be relying on imageboards for basic mental exchanges. I don't feel like I need to go really indepth with the philosophical aspects of this, given how it follows common sense. I feel like this is a zeno's paradox situation where we can easily dismiss most of what is being assumed in this thread by the basic mechanics are already commonly observe within day to day living. You should probably touch grass and not come up with smelly theories on your ivory coomer box upon which you've established your distortion of reality.

            "You" has multiple loci. The innermost is pure subjective experience, which you experience in dreams. But your body is still coextensive with that which constitutes the "total you".
            If we aren’t our body (we are, as I freely admit, also simultaneously "just" that dream subjectivity you mention. It’s a subset relation), then why would we wake up upon water being sprinkled over your body during sleep? You may say because the brain generates an saliency impulse that reaches your dream self — but see what happened here. The brain has undertaken an action divorced from your dream self. In what way is a certain brain pathway about reaction to cold water embedded inside that minimal self of pure awareness you are getting at?

            If you say that some neurochemical reaction to cold water is not in a meaningful sense part of „you“, then why do you feel a very real unpleasant sensation?

            If you take a radio and turn it on, it sounds off a broadcast. If you then take that radio, and you smash it, does the constituent signal go away, or did you just destroy the hardware? Side note, despite mentioning brain activity here, I hate when people use fMRI scans and the like to try and point to brain areas as concrete evidence of localization of experience/origins of behaviour, I get why it's alluring but it's terrible science, you can get fMRI data out of a dead salmon if you try hard enough.

        Correct. It was found years ago, there's a spot in the brain, I think near the center (possibly in the amygdala?) that controls that feedback loop.

        consciousness is just a feedback loop

        Anon, the you from one second ago is a different person than you right now.
        The only difference is that your current existence is continuous, i.e.: you're replacing your old you with a new version.

        >Muh you're just "emerging" from a bag of meat...how? idk, just trust me bro!
        I can smell your early life and nose length from all the way here, you demoralizing nihilistic homosexual.
        Equally likely, you're just severely autistic CS graduate with no spiritual intuition, in this case my apologies and condolences.

        There is only one universal consciousness. Wanting to live forever is a primitive egoic ape desire. "You" don't even exist as an individual entity, you will die and return to the source and "you" will love it.

        That's moronic.

            I am not claiming such thing. we have no idea about what else is going on, but I expect moving our consciousness in "synthetic brains" should work. that doesn't discount other weird shit that might be going on.
            if moving our consciousness in more robust hardware works, that implies there's something about the structure encoded in the information. which does this weird "holy shit I am" thing we experience. we don't know "who else" can access this data, from outside our universe, if there even is an outside. some god might be able to take the info and do whatever the frick he wants with it.
            all I am saying is that I think we can move our consciousness in different hardware and take advantage of that in a number of ways, in this universe based on the laws we so far discovered. that's it bro, nothing else. I am not implying other shit with this.

          Correct and it makes sense when you consider that no level of computation within our physical universe is instantaneous, even photons require motion in order to function. Reality being experienced is an internalized recreation that is effectively hallucinated in a controlled way and then projected outwards with the expectancy to correlate with the states of the external. Humans are interpreter based compiling.

If a clock doesn't even run at the same rate at sea levels as it does on a mountain peak, how can you say this state change is uniform across the entire system? Get fricking real.

            No, you don't understand, the information about the existence of something has to be recorded somewhere, right? Why would there be a delay in information transfer when that information is automaticaly known as soon as it comes to existence?
            Think about it like this, you've got two atoms on the opposite ends of the universe and they want to communicate, so one sends out an electromagnetic impulse, takes trillions of years to travel, but the information about both atoms is already there, their properties, their position, already recorded, by virtue of existence itself, why would reality have to communicate with electromagnetic signals when the information of everything that exists is already present and as soon as anything changes that information change is instantaneous and instantly known?

            Identity is encoded within information systems to degree, however just because a flesh is given a name and a life, doesn't suddenly give it immunity to the same conditions of physicalism that all other objects obey. A duplicate can be an extension of the source of identity, and will likely be treated as such when and if humanity comes up with some kind of solution or alternative to classical death. That still doesn't suddenly mean that extension broke the rules of physicalism. A clone is still a clone, regardless of identity.

      This. To be more precise, consciousness is an internal feedback loop.
      You know how LLM transformers take both input and output as input? It's like that.
      Your internal representation of external input are both processed at the same time.
      It's why people experience different things when seeing or doing the same thing.

    the short of it is that when you clone the observer, what happens next is in a sort of superposition, you get chances of waking up in original body or any of the clones you make at that point.
    if you make 3 clones you have 25% of waking up in either original body or one of the three clones body.
    if you destroy the original body manifesting you, and you only make one clone, you effectively get 100% chances of moving to the clone. that's it. and there's no quantum magic moving your consciousness energy bullshit, it's really really simple. you just refuse to understand it because chimp brain reasons. you are not smart by using that argument (it's not my consciousness) it's actually quite moronic, in the literal sense. you are a moron failing to understand something. and you are also proud of it kek

        as long as we get the ability to scan at required resolution (tech might already be close or even there, just not implemented) and perfectly rebuild it, the argument stands. how it's implemented, how much, to what degree etc (for neuromorphic stuff) that's a different discussion. having the whole neural stuff + nerves cut out for various functions which are not needed in neuromorphic hardware is most likely not going to change who you are. if you don't need the whole breathing and other bodily automation in the brain.
        what really matter is if it works. in the simple sense that if there's nothing missing and person who does this brain hardware change feels like themselves, report nothing is missing, that's all that really matters. if others do it and it works, and you refuse to do it because muh invisible undetectable spirit stuff...you gonna get owned by them, fast. you can philosophize about it how much you want, make it illegal, or say you lose your soul if you do it. if it works and there's nothing missing, and everybody gets along with it, the level of perks that offers is beyond anything humans ever came up with. travel at light speed between points you reached and have robo-bodies with those synthetic brains you can just upload to. no limitations for operating in a martian base, without a protective suit or whatever, no bio microclimate to maintain. everything becomes cheaper, faster, and you're not loosing important people anymore. great scientists or whatever.

            Absolutely. But think about it like this: If you hypothetically copy a brain and it becomes aware, you end up having 2 observers, one for each brain. Another option is that both have a shared observer, but I personally can't bend my mind around how it would work.

            Now assuming that 2 observers is what happens, how about when a brain continuity stops? Is the continuity itself the observer, or is it something external? I'd lean for the continuity, since external source for the observer doesn't fit my beliefs. If the continuity itself is the observer, then it ceases when it breaks, and that's what I find is the most plausible result based on the various assumptions.

            What do you think?

        I know this is a science board, but this board is spiritually dead, but so is most of the population, as has always been. The modern atheist idea that your brain creates you as a totally unique individual who will cease to have any experiences forever is nothing more than a mirror reflection of traditional Abrahamic fairy tales that you have a soul and you can go to paradise to chill with God and your relatives for eternity. Most normies are naive dualists naturally.
        It is impossible for egoic human apes to go back to animalistic mode of functioning, so the way forward for our species is to evolve into more insectoid, selfless collective with language completely revamped from the ground up, which does not consider people as "people".

          cut-paste is when you move to another body. copy-paste would needlesly make another you active at the same time which is moronic.
          but you can copy your brain as a backup, and restore from it if you die in active form. and you lose all experience between backup and when you die. that is when you restore from a backup, which you made by copying.
          cut-paste would effectively move you in another body but if you don't keep the info you don't have a backup. if you die you die like everyone else died so far, because no more info of you.

            if they die say a year later after backup, and you restore them, it will be them just without last year experience.
            think of you hitting your head and fully losing past year's memories, everything. if you restored from backup, you'd find yourself in the same situation, you can't remember anything that happened past year, but you glad you still alive.
            technically there are some differences but are irrelevant for the sake of this example. if you experienced something which created some neural networks in response, you'd still be under the influence of those networks even if you banged your head and forgot past year. like if you started doing meth and became a junkie, if you hit your head and forget last year experiences doesn't mean you'll not crave meth. or similar shit. but if you restore from backup you fully lose everything experienced in the year you're now missing. that's it.

            from your point of view, it will be like you fast-forwarded one year in the future, just like that. technically only one year died for you, not all. do backups more often and you risk loosing less. get it to realtime backup and you're basically immortal, if you have the resources to jump bodies like a madman

            and that also means that when you scan your brain for backup purposes, there's a chance you instantly fast forward to where you were restored from backup, because you'll always actually be, if you have the resources clearly. you will eventually wipe with any body you have. at any time you probe yourself/your memories you'd have experienced just that, always jumped when you got backed up. depending on how often you back up and how often you tend to wipe, at any point in the future when you're looking back you always jumped past the versions which wiped. that means that it's eventually imminent you'll scan and the very next experience is you restored from that scan, in the future after you wiped. you will wipe, we always did, we always will. just that with backup you can resume, and it forms this weird chain of always jumping over what kills you. it's kinda weird but makes sense.

            Absolutely. But think about it like this: If you hypothetically copy a brain and it becomes aware, you end up having 2 observers, one for each brain. Another option is that both have a shared observer, but I personally can't bend my mind around how it would work.

            Now assuming that 2 observers is what happens, how about when a brain continuity stops? Is the continuity itself the observer, or is it something external? I'd lean for the continuity, since external source for the observer doesn't fit my beliefs. If the continuity itself is the observer, then it ceases when it breaks, and that's what I find is the most plausible result based on the various assumptions.

            What do you think?

            notice how you're conjuring scenarios which have never happened anyway and expect them to make sense because ... ???
            when did having two of you at the same time made perfect sense to you that you are now expecting a classical solution to? with chimp brain you'll always error out on it because you never ever had to deal with it, so far, so you don't really have an intuitive way of thinking about it.

            Man, I don't know how you can miss my point in such a manner. Engineering isn't science. Science is validation of knowledge based on replicable experiments. The key point is "validation of knowledge". The engineering is done to FIND OUT what happens, based on a hypothesis. Hypothesis means an assumption, which is inherently unscientific, because it deals with the unkown. Hypotheses are however a must for the process, since it's the platform you engineer a test on top of, to validate or discard your hypothesis.

            So far, all the stuff you've linked is engineering the test itself. The test hasn't been done, there's no results. There's no science, yet. For now all there is is speculation, since there's nothing else yet.

            it is primitive bullshit which makes no fricking sense, logically even. where what I explained makes perfect sense and is to be expected if reality works the way we think it does at this point.

            Exactly, because this is a philosophy thread. That's my hypothesis. Is it actually correct? We will see! What you fail to see is that in terms of science, your hypothesis stands equal to mine. We both have our biases, which science aims to solve.

            what I said is purely based on everything else we see in this reality, we assemble something in a certain way, it behaves in a very expected/predictable way. I have literally everything going for what I think will happen and you have literally nothing scientific going for your belief.

            I don't think it can in the first place. I think consciousness is an emergent property of the brain, a process. A process that is continuous. It also somehow has an experience, which is the weird part.

            On a computer, when you start an application, is it the same process of that application the same each time, or is it a separate one? If you spawn two instances of the same application, is are the processes seperate instances? Does an instance have something unique for it to qualify as an instance?

            Far more relatable experience of memory loss is an alcohol induced blackout. You don't store momeries from that either, and later you don't identify with the person who operated relatively fine during the blackout. In terms of self-identification, I think both memory and the observer are essential, and form a whole.

            Yes, but there's always a viewer. Even in the case of no memories being made, there's the viewer without retention.

            yeah since the brain is active it's generating you, which starts doing shit. interacting with reality. you get hungry/thirsty you feel like taking a piss or a shit, you do shit, decide if you do it now or later, here or somewhere else, you are facing these decisions without any memory. you start building a sense of self? while being forced to respond to reality?

            Actually, it is, and I don't need to be a solipsistic schizoid with protagonist disorder to reconcile with the fact. There will never be another me with 100% of the same collective experiences and physical characteristics that will be paralleled unless the universe were under some super-deterministic cyclical model that only morons that believe order is low complexity would try to convince me of. The very basis of this thread entails a change in material substrate, which is an aspect of my information being changed. Your concept of simulated substrate to be inherently the same as one of physical flesh is delusional. Also, I don't use social media other than IQfy.

            Location cannot be encoded into the duplicate within a physical universe, it's common sense. Two people can't occupy the same physical space at once, I don't need to even begin to get deep into facts to state this obvious one. So that's one point for me and my common sense over your crack smoking abstraction. Two, a person made of electricity is not the same as a person made of red meat, that's yet another point for me. I could expand this to include other variables, but your argument is so easy to defeat, it's entirely unnecessary.

            you error out thinking about it because you think once your body goes away the (You) side-effect of that body's material structure goes away forever, somewhere, you don't know where or why, but you're fricking sure of it, somehow, unexplainable.
            (You) pop into existence every time an identical material structure is assembled, because it's manifesting (You) obligatory like another LED diode emits the same fricking light. it must happen, if you assemble the LED correctly it will obligatory emit light in a certain spectrum defined by the physics of its structure.
            so (You) will pop up every time in any identical material structure. you have it the wrong way around in a (bad) intuitive way.
            we know the LED light can be turned off
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_hypothermic_circulatory_arrest
            when it's powered back the very same fricking light pops back out. the same (You).
            so, if apparently it doesn't fricking matter if you turn the light on or off, and the diodes are identical, there's no real difference between (You) popping up in any clone. just make sure you only have one LED lit up at any time, not more, and it makes perfect sense and you don't even care. or know.
            but so far, whenever the LED light went off for any amount of time, the LED broke and light never came out of it. do you think this has something to do with the moronic idea that you are uniquely tied to your present body?

            I am every bit my body, if an aspect of my body was removed, then it would affect the total sum of my conscious state, which includes but is not limited to direct mental awareness, my potential to commit motion is every bit myself, and altercations to those fundamental actions are irrevocably changing my core behaviors. It is because of my body that I am allowed to be conscious, and clearly all information about my consciousness is encoded within that physical body, and this process is entirely individualistic. If this were not the case, we wouldn't be relying on imageboards for basic mental exchanges. I don't feel like I need to go really indepth with the philosophical aspects of this, given how it follows common sense. I feel like this is a zeno's paradox situation where we can easily dismiss most of what is being assumed in this thread by the basic mechanics are already commonly observe within day to day living. You should probably touch grass and not come up with smelly theories on your ivory coomer box upon which you've established your distortion of reality.

            What identical material structure are you duplicating that allows for there to be jump in occurrence of consciousness you dumb frick? If I'm uploaded, or replicated then I'm no longer of the same material at all, regardless of whatever you believe to be achievable with pure computational alternatives. The fact that I am a being of pure nature made of flesh that no man can replicate even with the most zealous attempts of fiction means your argument doesn't make any godanm sense.

            The literal only way there could ever be a 100% duplicate for me to jump to, assuming this quantum tunneling nature you keep trying to attribute to consciousness still couldn't occur unless we lived in a super deterministic universe that were entirely cyclical in model. This way we could actually claim there was a informational duplicate to even exist in the first place. Any other situation will result in that duplication having some form of information regarding it altered that we can easily conclude they are no longer the same object. Location and substrates can be quantified as variables thus they are at the very least bits of information that can't be dismissed when trying to calculate the sum of persons potential for motion or action.

            yeah but if you go to sleep/anesthesia, get cloned, wake up, both of you will have the very same memories, both of you will think they are original and no memory differs, apart from the waking point forward. so, based on that..which one is which?

            Again, why was the interruption of the originals functio necessary in order to create the condition for your absurd argument to make sense? You sound like an idiot.

            look, the moment you copy the info of your first body, in the very same next planck unit of time your present body diverges from the copy.
            if you build a new body, after it's built that too will start diverging from the copy. the copy is a snapshot, nothing else. the only difference is where in space you are located. if you copy and nothing else, you are where your first body is, that's you single active instance, your perpetual original body. if you don't stop it, eg destroy it.
            the thought experiment is about having two bodies of same information origin, they clearly diverge from that seed as time passes, neither of original or clone is similar to seed info, they both go in two different ways based purely on their location in space, that's it, no other difference between them, other than the environmental effects from their place in space.

            This is so obvious, I don't know why it needs to be stated. This entire thread is actual moronation. These people don't even have a leg to stand on, why even bother btfoing them again and again?

            ok, I think I figured out why most people have issues with understanding it. they are working with a wrong premise and inevitably error out and have to come up with wild shit.
            so, the wrong assumption is that you exist somewhere else than here, like a unique soul which God knows personally, unique ID, and this soul of yours has access to all of your possible "incarnations" here in 3D, and only happens sequentially never in parallel. so another you in parallel with you makes no fricking sense in this framework, because your "soul" doesn't have a way to access the clone's experiences. some of you expect to have the clone's perspective/experience as well at the same time, and I think that weird thought stems from the framework you built so far, around this subject.
            you won't be able to reconcile it with reality, you will have to come up with weird shit like "oh another consciousness takes over the clone, but that new consciousness doesn't know it's new"
            you are non-scientifically fighting for a non-scientific premise for which the only justification you have is some sort of intuition, but no fricking science.

            No you fricking moron, it's not hard to grasp that in order for you to truly claim that you were moved from one body to another and there to be some unknown rule of consciousness that goes against common sense of physicality of identity in a universe where individuality and death are the only certain conditions would demand parallelism.

            because if you want to run a single one of (You) at any time, you must terminate previous instance if you switch bodies.

            and from the medical procedure where your body activity fully stops for up to one hour, we know it doesn't matter if your body doesn't manifest you for a while. when it starts doing it again, it's still you.
            so, during the operation, if you copied and fully destroyed the body, and somehow reassemble it the very same way, and start it but in another operating room, it will start up, and the very same person is still inside. the same consciousness.

            If consciousness stems from the body, then when the body is different (the state changes, new atoms come in and old go out) the consciousness is also different. It isn't parallel, it's split path from a same source.

            ok but how much does that matter if you have that surgery? once you start it again it's clearly different by your logic. so then..is there a new consciousness in that body who doesn't know it's new and mistakenly thinks it's the original one? and takes over that poor suckers life? and he actually fricking died and someone else is fricking his wife?

            In thought, yes. In practice, does it matter? The old one isn't anymore, and the new one is functionally the same. The only downside is that the new one might have existential dread with the idea if he subscribes to it. The old one doesn't have that capacity, since it's no more.

    ok, I think I figured out why most people have issues with understanding it. they are working with a wrong premise and inevitably error out and have to come up with wild shit.
    so, the wrong assumption is that you exist somewhere else than here, like a unique soul which God knows personally, unique ID, and this soul of yours has access to all of your possible "incarnations" here in 3D, and only happens sequentially never in parallel. so another you in parallel with you makes no fricking sense in this framework, because your "soul" doesn't have a way to access the clone's experiences. some of you expect to have the clone's perspective/experience as well at the same time, and I think that weird thought stems from the framework you built so far, around this subject.
    you won't be able to reconcile it with reality, you will have to come up with weird shit like "oh another consciousness takes over the clone, but that new consciousness doesn't know it's new"
    you are non-scientifically fighting for a non-scientific premise for which the only justification you have is some sort of intuition, but no fricking science.

I only care about the fact that your consciousness cannot jump between bodies regardless of whatever absurdity technology makes me engage with. As an absurdist, I have no issues with that. The issue I have is the concept of something being a fundamental aspect of reality never even once occurring naturally so far , to suddenly now be in consideration on the basis of identity? No anon, you are not unique or special, nor is your clone that will firmly believe itself to be you and replace you. Do these conditions made the classical definitions of identity seem silly?

            Again, super determinism is literally fake a gay tier and the only way I could "notice" it topologically speaking is if it were a cyclical universal model. Where I could say there is zero variation between universal cycles for the collective that is (me) to ever occur more than once over an infinite timescale. When you die, you cannot play the game of life anymore, nobody in human history, yourself included has ever lived more than once. Anyone claiming to, is delusional.

        The frick kind of question is that? The same way we know solipsism isn't true, even without absolution, it goes against everything we've come to establish as coherence within our system. If ghosts were real, it'd be predictable enough to recreate as a phenomenon that would have made it become an established science. The fact isn't helps to clarify plenty for most people. Relativity is fun, but it does have limits within a predictive and absolute universe. You can't prove super determinism or disprove it, yet every operation and process depends on that causality.

    >consciousness
    The process of creating/manipulating information from noise.

    Noise is captured via input from various sources (i.e eye/ears), the noise is then automatically classified according to self similar groups. This creates various categories and which we confuse as entities/selves. One pernicious thing about consciousness process is that we can take a pre-processed event and then separate the event from the self-referenced body. This self-reference is then mistakenly confused as an entity/self.

    An easy way to demonstrate that my copy is not myself even if it contains all of my memories besides the obvious point of divergence is realizing its disallowed for them to occupy the same time and space, let alone identical substrate like material. An individual informationally includes all previous states of an object unto its point of origin, physicalism is very distributed in aging and causality. Thus if I can can clearly make those distinctions between object 1 and object 2, clearly they are not the same object, even if said object claims to identify as an extension of the other. There is no coinflip to the outside observer, and people claiming there is to internal observer require an interruption state beckoned upon the original as if somehow this is necessary to capture a specific state of the mind. One can easily know if they're the clone or not by having any lapse of memory that allowed for an unexplained positional change.

          make a testable hypothesis. the question is if dude's consciousness transfers. you need to devise a test to test his consciousness and find something missing, so you can argue it doesn't get transfered. in lieu of that you are fricked, all your complaining is irrelevant, because people will just simply ignore it if it works in practice.

            But I just explained precisely why it doesn't. Again if I died multiple times, why did my consciousness remerge specifically and only back into the original body and not a different one? And don't try to sell me on schizo ideas about how I dimension hopped, I have all the physical evidence I need within this universe to prove the events occurred in this one and not some alternative one I tunneled from. If there were some unknown principle of consciousness that allowed it decouple itself from the thing that gave it emergence in the first place, then it would have happened already. Your freak immortals will not be the originals and your solutions are defacto not a solution to death. In order for death to be overcome, you absolutely have to solve the transference problem first. Otherwise you're making an industry of cloning and not actually life extension. Your argument is entirely emotional and irrational and based on desire. My argument is solely based on the rules of reality, thus I'm being far more objective than you.

For how could I ever walk upon the surface of the sun if the flames were too great for me to tolerate? I will refine away my pains and pleasures all the same. I find the idea of even being corporeal of having a body at all to be a limitation. I want for so much more than any toddler conception of heaven.

            The closest thing I've ever had to that kind of inspiration was from a welcomic called killsixbilliondemons. It wasn't quite a religion, but it definitely helped me pull my head out of my ass when I lost my mind a few times in my 20's. Rereading today doesn't enrapture it fully for myself anymore as it's still only a creative work at the end of the day. But I definitely get what you mean.

            Fanged noumena was a trip too. Still, I think one of the most damaging thing to Academics is to merely parrot or transcribe something you read as absolute fact. While math is great for example, I still view it as a tool and not some absolute representation of reality.

            If said tech is able to overcome the fundamental problems it has on a conceptual level, then perhaps it can create better conditions for the still biologically living. However I've yet to hear a proposition for transference problem that wasn't just "hey if the consciousness arises out of the body, why not replace the brain sequentially with artifical versions of itself until eventually years later the person has fully working digital brain to be uploaded". And I'm sure even you can pick apart that solution and see how it might not work.

When I tell you that this body and life is the only one that you'll be able to experience in THIS world and universe, I genuinely mean it.

            You could summon an interdimensional portal in front of me and I'd shrug it off as dull and interesting by the means of which I've lived so far. Dare I even say I might have been one of the few types of schizos to hit wizard tier. Your mind is stuck to this form. You can even leave this realm for a lifetime of experienced years, with a new name and new life and experience that life out in it entirety. Yet the moment it is over, if you weren't finished yet in THIS body, you will absolutely find yourself back here and spun out tier disoriented and confused. When this body is done, it's void time.

            Tl:Dr I'm shitposting, but half seriously because my life has actually been that crazy.

            there is some frickery with this reality, I'll give you that. still that doesn't automatically mean some very particular things. brain is so good at piecing things together. that combined with indeed some sort of frickery might get you off track, many such cases.

            >I still think death ultimately when considering infinite timescales is probably the greatest gift we've ever received
            well I am not doing anything, there's a frickload of universities and all kinds of entities working into it anon. I'm just a fricking NEET, I can't afford the extension cord they use to plug their computer into the wall lmao.
            you have your ideas about death, they stop with you. same as my ideas about death, they stop with me. as in I am not forcing you to accept my idea of death. you do whatever the frick you want, I do whatever the frick I want.
            but the way I understand it now, death is not real, it doesn't exist. what you and almost all humans call death, call it as a consequence, not because you had access to some special knowledge coming outside this universe. your brain concocted the best coping story, which worked evolutionary speaking. you understand death from observing humans not getting up after their bodies get fricked. you call THAT death, inactive body.
            this dynamic, made for all sorts of weird shit and stories, and philosophies. because that is what you always ever had, once body is fricked no more that person.
            so much so, coming back started being seen as reserved for gods. because humans couldn't do it. ever.
            but, humans who came up with all the ideas and philosophies, did what they did based on the information they had SO FAR. they couldn't have considered all the information about it, because they didn't have access to it. like they didn't know the earth is round for a long ass time, because they had no reason to come up with such a fricking idea. once information started seeping in, it became impossible to consider otherwise.
            back then, shit was the same as now, flat earth meant something deeper, spiritually, religiously, we were the center of it all. all of a sudden, we were faced with the fact that we aren't actually.
            so now, the concept of death is being challenged, the most primitive of them will chimp the frick out

        Oh and your alternative claim is suddenly so concrete? You literally don't even have a proposed solution to the transference problem and try to flatly dismiss it as irrelevant. As someone who's actually died and came back a few times, I can attest that my consciousness is objectively tied to this physical body and even if it were emerge similarly somewhere else if recreated under remotely similar conditions, the active consciousness tied to this physical body will not suddenly shift or move to it. You aren't actually solving death, yet you're trying to sweep these problems under the rug and convince people it's the correct choice anyways. Are you really that afraid of dying?

          listen, you don't seem to get it. everybody and their dog knows all you weirdos can conjure reasons to deny it, but you being so fricking slow completely miss the fricking essential in fricking science.
          make a testable hypothesis. the question is if dude's consciousness transfers. you need to devise a test to test his consciousness and find something missing, so you can argue it doesn't get transfered. in lieu of that you are fricked, all your complaining is irrelevant, because people will just simply ignore it if it works in practice.
          every glow agency in the world is going to be messing with it and assemble its freak immortals, if it works in practice. in time that whole lost soul bullshit will become at most a formality that they'll do away with since nobody is fricking complaining. dude making the jump will confirm everything is still there, and once he does it he realizes it's like taking the plane somewhere, it's still you on arrival.
          you just don't fricking get it with all that moronic "let me tell you some made up bullshit why it's not real because I actually don't agree with it so gonna pull shit out of my ass"

            >if it works in practice

            But I just explained precisely why it doesn't. Again if I died multiple times, why did my consciousness remerge specifically and only back into the original body and not a different one? And don't try to sell me on schizo ideas about how I dimension hopped, I have all the physical evidence I need within this universe to prove the events occurred in this one and not some alternative one I tunneled from. If there were some unknown principle of consciousness that allowed it decouple itself from the thing that gave it emergence in the first place, then it would have happened already. Your freak immortals will not be the originals and your solutions are defacto not a solution to death. In order for death to be overcome, you absolutely have to solve the transference problem first. Otherwise you're making an industry of cloning and not actually life extension. Your argument is entirely emotional and irrational and based on desire. My argument is solely based on the rules of reality, thus I'm being far more objective than you.

    I'm ok if religious people want to ban this technology from other religious people. That should work out just fine.

        and this is what is publicly known. who knows what other shit happens behind closed doors.

        and I remember seeing some tech reaching synapse level but there's quite a few ways of doing it to some resolution
