Growing a human sounds easier then creating a prosthetic brain at this scale, but a human would born without any memory. In this case a prosthetic brain can be structured with correct memory. But waking up in an artificial body sounds scary, I have that scene from Robo cop stuck in mind. If only human transmutation would work, jk

Third option, immortality based on digitizing yourself, sort of like the anime Expelled From Paradise

With online auto-pay, you don't even have to think about it. But if you die, you also don't have to think about it. Works for me, either way.

Give me the option for immortality and I will NOT accept it. Why? Dying is part of the process of life and besides I would be taking up space for another unborn life and that's selfish in my opinion also I want to see what comes after this but God forbid right now.


Right, except I'm pretty sure the universe is big enough to house a tiny species from a tiny planet that started at the tiny wee-edge of the tiny milky way, in a tiny galaxy cluster that's a part of a tiny strand of galaxy clusters that makes up a tiny portion of the intergalactic web that makes up the tiny strand of the whole intergalactic web residing within an expansive matter gucked webbing that we call the universe.

I've been thinking about immortality, and if transferring consciousness is easy by matching the electrical synapse at 150m/s, then all that's left is a suitable body to transfer the consciousness to. So it gets down to two options and I would like to hear your opinion as well as which option you would prefer.

1. Human body: This would be the case where you fertilize the egg and sperm in an incubator to grow a human being from scratch so you can eventually transfer the consciousness into it. The problem is it would be hard because a consciousness can be naturally developing, so you need a way to inhibit the consciousness from developing, while at it you need to keep track of the blood flow, heart beat, and all the essential elements a human body would need until you transfer the consciousness into the body. The up side is it is a human body, so once you have the consciousness in, you are set. There is also ethical concern about this concept.

2. Android body: This is where it gets tricky. You are using a technique similar to 3d printing to print the structure of the brain with neuronal structures. It does not have to be real neurons, but structure that would allow membrane potential and transferring of electrical signals. If the brain plasticity is not a factor and it eventually becomes static then it might be doable. You can keep check of the consciousness of this artificial brain, and you can transfer the consciousness into it whenever you like it. The problem is you would become an android, no one has done it before, and I am not even sure if you need to breath. The up side is the body can maintain for as long as it needs, you don't need heart beat, breathing, and all those essential elements and can probably get by with just the synthetic brain itself, of course you need to get limbs, body, and probably a pair of eyes. You can 3d print as fast and as many replacement parts as needed.

For me, I really would like a human body because nothing works better than having a human body. The problem is keeping a body like this would be quite hard, this got me thinking about the android body, I really would like my eyes done right, so I can see, and I would probably want to breath as well.

Let me know which body you prefer and your idea behind it.




This question was extremely easy for me to answer, it's obvious for me i'd want an Android body, human bodies are weak, frail, can get sick, and hurt, bleed, and tissue dies eventually.

Android body is 10000000% better in every way, there's literally zero downside for me at all.

Easy question, but fun nonetheless

Or you can live inside a digital world and become a cyborg when you need to
