Whats funny is that I read this article then The Matrix came on TV.

Emulating a human brain is not the same as emulating a sentient mind. You could argue that we have already emulated the brain in computers that automate repetitive tasks, or other machines such as life support machines that allow "brain dead" people to stay alive.

We can dissect a brain, but you cant really dissect a mind. Of course there will be a lot of disagreement over whether this is possible, but as the article points it, its because we are hard wired to think linearly, not exponentially. Who is to say that we wont figure it out in 10-15 years.


What I would like to discuss is the part where he says that we will expand and pretty much take over the universe, and that its our destiny.
For all we know, there could already be a highly advanced race of machines heading in our direction from another galaxy.


A final key point that I would like to throw out there is that he says it is inevitable that we will create computers that can far surpass the human brain. Considering that nobody actually knows the full potential of the human brain, I think its a bit presumptuous to assume that we will create something more powerful then something that we cant actually measure the full power of.


I hope I made a few heads explode there.

This was a very interesting article. +Rep for the find. However, the main problem I have with it is the assumption that the current present will continue unabated into said future.

Let’s not forget that the planet is 4.7 Billion years old and our entire civilization has existed for only 20,000 or so years of it. I find it just a little arrogant to think that environment in which this may occur is static in terms of its stability. You get major pandemic to occur or perhaps an asteroid striking the earth and I think that would put a pretty big dent in anyone’s plans.

If the future does turn out to be this way, then I suppose it was meant to be. But Mother Nature tends to be pretty good at throwing monkey wrenches into our best laid plans.

Good read. I do find such thinking to be unique and in perspective to 'human' species moving forward in some aspects. I don't know if it will be as drastic as the read, but I would say we will reach this milestone in our near future.

i wish my telomeres would stay still already.

edit: This reminds me of the last couple episodes of Stargate Universe. Anyone see those where they uploaded a couple people's consciousnesses to the ship's computer? The last one as well where Rush did and was stuck.

The question is, what if you end up replicating your consciousness, but your physical consciousness still exists. you still die because your consciousness in your body is individual, it's like having a perfect twin.

Until they can stop aging, man will never really be immortal.

Stop bringing religion into the discussion, guys, that's directly against the ToS. If it happens again I'll have to close this.

So you know about everything in existence then?

I'd say humans are definitely special. But until we meet another intelligent species, we have no basis for comparison on just how special we really are.

I doubt this. All about the laws of thermodynamics?

If death is when our mind ceases to exist so to speak, is a brain-dead person really dead? What about simple organisms not capable of having thoughts? Are they dead too?
