Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is everywhere in this day and age, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.

@anonymous #1 you could read the older posts as well, I have had this blog since 2006 I think :)

@anonymous #2 yes, I agree, although your comment is a little abrupt.

A concern I see, with being able to upload memory, is that we could see humans living virtual lives where you can be the 'god' of your very own virtual little universe.

You see once we can find an interface between mind and matter, our physical bodies would be nothing but a hindrance, an unnecessary vestige. We would all be brains in vats.

I hope I am still alive when that day comes. It might be fascinating to see.
