The World Wide Web is a network of inter-connectivity that goes everywhere and follows its own intelligence. The advent of this newly emerging communication field around our planet has enabled citizens from all lifestyles to communicate globally via words, sounds and pictures â€" inexpensively, person-to-person; and from the safety of their own homes and offices â€" for the first time ever.

Eh... my biggest problem is that if you download your mind onto the net all you are doing is copying yourself. Your consciousness is still up there, in your brain. You would need to LITERALLY take all of your brain activity and put it onto a computer or the internet. Leaving your brain inactive and dead.

Then again, this is really strange indeed.

for any kind of consciousness, there will need to be more than hardware hooked up together.

link up 1000 processors with one of them being some kind of "control" unit to divvy up the work, and they'll get it done pretty quickly. they won't suddenly become "aware" of what they're doing unless that control processor has the right instruction set
