Serious mind uploading researchers have emerged recently, taking this seemingly science-fictional notion seriously and pursuing it via experimental and theoretical research programs, Goertzel and Ilke’ note. At the request of KurzweilAI, the publishers have kindly made both the Introduction and the first paper by Koene, Fundamentals Of Whole Brain Emulation: State, Transition And Update Representations, open access, available in full text on the International Journal of Machine Consciousness website. July 6, 2012 by Kaziel The much needed technology is a fully developed brain-computer-interface.
July 4, 2012 by Editor OK, cool, a whole new concept: downloading!
July 6, 2012 by KingBrandonM If God exists i would prefer to go to Hell, it seems like a much more enjoyable place tbh. July 6, 2012 by GPtest Testing comments with an alt (this is Giulio).
It is ironic to me that people are so afraid of uploading when that is exactly what will stop our daily practice of dying.
July 2, 2012 by Chris Can we get a higher-res version of the illustration please? June 27, 2012 by Bri Since the post have stopped, I guess it’s safe to write some more. You can say the same about tomorrow’s version of you (the person who will wake up in your bed tomorrow). The previous ones were like slightly dumb and ignorant versions of me, less and less as you get closer to now, and the coming ones will be, while physically deteriorating (not that much for a few decades since I eat right and exercise) mentally awesomer and awesomer, hopefully until the very end. June 27, 2012 by Opspersec A summary of the actual technological steps forward (engineering, science) presented in this issue would be nice for those of us who prefer that sort of thing.
Maybe it is physically impossible to copy a mind without destroying the original at the same time though, so that at any instant in time there can only be ONE mind with that particular subjective perspective that supervenes on the mind. June 26, 2012 by Bri With a name like snake I can see you have fangs. June 26, 2012 by Bri As I said, even radical upgrade would result in continuity. July 18, 2012 by Sonhouse I think you are absolutely correct and our advances will dwarf anything we can conceive now, from our very limited points of view. June 26, 2012 by iterator Wow, so many ignore the process by which we’ve allowed machines greater access into our existence. June 26, 2012 by John Doe I would imagine that if I were to replace a single neuron in my head with an artificial neuron, that I would retain the same level of consciousness, and that if this process repeated, I would continue to be aware.
Maybe due to the complexity of the brain (the interaction of hormones etc) it will result in a pure neuronal simulation being incomplete, and we would transfer our minds into a state of incompleteness, but that is to prejudice the ability for us to simulate even the immensely complex interactions of our brain in its brain soup. June 26, 2012 by aus You can do a simple thought experiment to determine if mind uploading will result in immortality. Say you did a non-destructive upload to a computer, that is your memories are uploaded to the computer but your brain is left intact and perfectly functioning in your skull. So you wake up from this uploading procedure and you have a conversation with the computer. June 27, 2012 by Alex I see your argument as unfinished or at least half.
Ok so finally you discover that you lost a physical body and are in the process of evaluating your experience in compairing it with what you used to feel when you had a “real Biological body” and you say things like i wonder what people think of me now that i am the fake me ? June 27, 2012 by MatthewQ Your physical meat body would continue on the downward trajectory of decrepitude and die- of course. The scenario you mention of waking up and having the conversation with yourself is a very interesting point but it also contains a bit of the answer.
I think it would not be so bad having yourself as a companion for the rest of your days when viewed in this liight. June 26, 2012 by Matthew Fuller Thank you, thanks, and thank you for the quick peak. However, smart persons have been discussing this for decades, and will probably continue for other decades, until mind uploading will be operational routine, at which point I think the metaphysical doubts will disappear like a snowflake in the sun. Re reading the papers, note that “Editor Ben Goertzel has also gathered links to informal, “preprint” versions of the papers in this Special Issue, hosted on the paper authors’ websites. Of course hypothetical techniques such as non-destructive uploading and synthetic cell replacement further complicate this issue. The Kurzweil Accelerating Intelligence newsletter concisely covers relevant major science and technology breakthroughs (daily or weekly) via e-mail. Setting your mind on the spirit is an often talked about, but a seemingly very abstract concept to today’s Christian. The western mind is programmed to analyze and dissect every piece of information and either accept it because it fits into what we deem likely and possible, or deny it because it is classified as unlikely and impossible. In order to see God move in your fasting you must expand your belief system to a new dimension, the realm of the supernatural where anything is possible. There is another way that our minds are set on the flesh besides simply being too logical in our assessments.
Mistakenly, most of the body of Christ has been pointlessly aiming at dying to the flesh itself. If we continue to subscribe to this false theology we are left fighting something that we can’t get rid of (our bodies), that has already been crucified with Christ, and praying for the day when we will no longer have to deal with our flesh; the day we die. As stated earlier, the flesh itself is simply our physical bodies and their inclination for survival. Think of your carnal desires (sex, hunger, acceptance, temperature control, etc.) as sensors on a state of the art space suit designed to function perfectly on earth. This example is given without any consideration for a man or woman that actually has the Spirit of God living within them.

The first century apostle Paul understood this dilemma when he declared that we are “transformed by the renewing of our minds” (Romans 12:2). While fasting, the desires of your flesh will initially be intensified as it signals its need to survive, but as you tame that most insistent desire, you will also have opportunity to tame all other carnal desires. The easiest way to investigate this is simply to start adding keywords and branching out without too much contemplation or the mind starts to think in a linear fashion. The beauty and diversity of using Mind Maps is that it encourages radial thinking which uncovers wider and more interesting ideas. I could have added more main branches and even more words to each branch, as the system of Mind Mapping creates infinite possibilities, yet I decide I have enough branches for this particular Mind Map. To make the Mind Map more memorable and exciting to look at I add sketches and illustrations, concentrating on simplicity. Two brilliant tips here are to use light colours and spread the colours fairly evenly throughout the Mind Map so that there is a good balance overall. Connect your main branches to the central image and connect your second-level branches to the first and so on. Make your branches curved rather than straight-lined, the central lines being thicker, organic and flowing, becoming thinner as they radiate from the center.
Keep the mind map clear by using radiant hierarchy, numerical order or outlines to embrace your branches. Always had a very personal interest in the Mind logo, designed by Glazer back in 2004, due to my own experiences with mental health, depression etc. The first time I saw the Mind logo was around the time I had my breakdown then subsequently diagnosed with severe depression, anxiety etc. To keep a terrifically long story short, I immediately understood, and appreciated, the design of the Mind logo. Logo Stack: a collection of real-world (no concept, or fake logos here) logo & brand identity designs. Koene (a contributor of two papers to this volume) has formed a nonprofit organization called Carbon Copies ( to promote mind uploading research.
These preprint versions are not guaranteed to be identical to the final published versions, but the content should be essentially the same, he advises.
Once this is figured out, the rest should be relatively fast-forward, since the basic framework for brain emulation is already available, but strangely ignored. I’m using it as a desktop wallpaper, I have a 1080p monitor, and it looks ugly with bitmap scaling. But even in older age, you may reconfigure your mind so profoundly in just a few years (or days or less?) that versions from just a few thousand days ago seem alien.
Then it could be that i AM the computer once my mind gets uploaded to it and the manifestation of my mind as a brain perishes at the same time that it is copied. We’ll look back in 100 years and giggle at how simple we were, just as we look back today at 100 years ago.
We’ve come a long way from sharpened rock, to wooden teeth, to artificial hearts, and now artificial ears and eyes. What’s crucial is that the pattern of action potential is maintained, as it is this massively parallel dynamic process that gives rise to consciousness I think. Your mind would have also been uploaded to a new substrate and continue in the this format too. I think your original meat body would still go through a lot of the normal anxieties about mortality and death. If so, once you upload thoughts and memories, you upload also consciousness, whatever that is.
That is that a computer that uploads your mind may have your memories and thoughts, but not your consciousness.
Most of us have been taught that the desires of the flesh are inherently evil and cause us to inevitably fall into sin. Consider that this theology actually encourages us to wish and hope for death, as opposed to learning and exercising proper self control so that we can live our days in victory.
Your urges are the messages sent to your mind by various sensors that have been wired to interpret information from your surroundings. A born again believer in Jesus has access to the “mind of Christ” and therefore does not have to revert to the mindset that indulges the desires of their flesh. Learn to recognize the desires of your flesh during your fasting and pray for wisdom on how to tame them and view certain circumstances the right way; with the mind set on the Spirit. I always have in mind when adding pictures – what is the best or easiest way to represent the words and concepts. In this case, I used a very thick pen to create the branches and that helped when it came to filling the colour by computer. It pretty much summed up the torrent of thoughts, doubts, uncertainty one experiences in these key low periods. Olympics gonna get nuked in a month then ww3 starts and then it’s only a matter of months, not years. Besides, Heaven is filled past the brim with people i hate, why would i want to spend eternity there?
The difference in subjective perspective becomes very evident if you think of the version of you that existed 30 years ago, or will exist in 30 years. Maybe the subjective perspective gets preserved then, but i think there is no way to ever verify this from a third perspective. Why does it not occur to some that a new substrate should take over as portions of the old substrate are either disabled or made obsolete. Nothing is impossible to Him, and therefore nothing is impossible for us to experience through Jesus in our fasts.

Most of the body of Christ is aware that the desires of the flesh are an issue, but have not been taught effective methods of dealing with this problem. And, like all other creations that God made, He created them, stepped back and “saw that it was good” (Genesis 1).
His entire profession revolves around the analysis and diagnosis of the female reproductive system. The Holy Spirit is given to us to lead and guide us into all truth, and empower us to walk in that truth.
As believers we are not seeking to overcome the flesh itself, but rather to overcome a mind set on the flesh. It is not necessary to illustrate every word and in fact, it is just as likely that the images get created when adding the keywords. Normally the main branches from the central image would be thicker working out to thinner branches as you add new words so that it is easy to see the main points.
However I’m open-minded and want to give it try as I find that studying can be a challenge. All of the worlds FreeThinkers, Intellectuals, Visionaries, all my friends, and almost everyone i idolize are going to Hell according to most Christians so obviously thats the place to be. In fact that word (impossible) must cease to exist in our minds as it pertains to the extent of our Heavenly Father’s power.
It is in your mind where the interpretation of these messages comes into play and your concepts of those messages then determine what is the proper course of action based on the information given by the flesh.
Daily he is required to examine portions of the female anatomy that would likely cause the average man to succumb to temptation. To do this we need to spend time seeking the revelation of God through His spoken word to us, and through the scriptures.
Personally im Atheist, formerly Caholic until i read the bible and realized its complete and utter BS. To move from one substrate to another while maintaining a coherent consciousness, you must iteratively replace the old susbstrate with the new, until all that remains is the new.
What a testament to the audacity and pride of man to deny God’s declaration of quality and instead declare our own.
It is the interpretation of the information from our flesh that is our real concern, not necessarily the information or even the sensor itself. However, this doctor is required to view each situation through a purely academic perspective.
Because Mind Maps use a combination of words and images they are far more brain-friendly than a list of text; brilliant for memorising information and fun to create. Now i am a Biotechnology major in my first year of college and i hope to become a Synthetic Biologist and work in the field of Genetic Enineering, i am hoping to participate in the process of improving mankind. I’m not suggesting that uploading your mind would be a simple process by any means, but it is not impossible. As opposed to making declarations about our flesh that may perhaps be outrageous to God, lets rather look at the desires of our flesh as survival mechanisms that must be viewed with a proper lens. Hopefully he doesn’t stumble, not because his body or flesh is made of something different than every other man, but because his thoughts are made of something different.
I personally cannot wait until the Rapture, so you guys can finally leave me alone, if Jesus doesnt come for you soon, im calling a cab. Our aim is that we may interpret those desires correctly and manage these urges appropriately so that we may walk in holiness. He doesn’t stumble because his thoughts are set in a way that gives him a completely different perspective. The problem with faith is that you dont truly know, with science you do know and if your wrong you have the luxury of changing your beliefs, in religion you dont have that luxury, its infallible even in the face of blatant contradicting evidence to the contrary, you just shut your eyes and pretend it isnt there, we look at the evidence and if it supports it we accept it, if it doesnt we dont. The Skeptic web site is real, but it wouldn’t let me apply for the million dollar prize. Later, as I was in the bathroom, I had that feeling like an elevator drop, and I saw more clearly the area that I would be stopped. It’s relatively easy to project extensions of my spirit, but it is firmly bound to my body. It was on the way to my job site, one block before I would turn of merrick Rd in Masapequa. As I got into my van, it hit me again, but this time I could see it as if I were within that block. As I turned on to Merrick Rd I could see a cop car, pulled over to the side, with it’s lights on. If you live for a thousand more years in the future, then you have’nt met yourself till you have those experiences.
It strikes me very plainly that even though it hasn’t happened in our time frame, it still has happened already. I have avoided several car accidents because I moved out of the way of an accident that I witnessed in front of me up the road before it happened. It may be hard for me to tell you something to convince you of the truth I’m telling.
