Sure you can. Consciousness can be transferred - its done everyday ! You can become conscious of some thing or its state, or you can simply become conscious of some understanding that you have not thought of prior to that point in or of time/space, whatever. And you can transfer that "state of mind" to another being, either thru empathetic gestures/looks, or in words/text/music that other people can hear or read. Current skiences are finding areas of the brain that correspond to states of consciousness using EEG analysis.
But the idea of "uploading our brains" gives me the shivers. Its the usual rot from some leading spokesperson, like the promise of flying cars in the future, never mind that a majority of the world's peoples are living in conditions substandard to those conditions found in the first world.
beware the military-industrial complex :perplexed:
