    The thing about uploading my conscience is that I will be dead. I will still be in the endless nothing. The robot or AI would be alive but I won't.

    These are my thoughts on it, and yes I know I am a believer in god I take in all possibilities of creation, spirituality, possibilities of how reality and everything was created, these are my thoughts.
    the issue of copying one's memories isn't the problem, your messing with information in our brains your not actually messing with what makes us alive or determines life and death or in this case the soul and or spirituality, copying memories only copies things that already exist and adds it to something new, that sounds more like reincarnation that transferring information, Transferring data from one point to another would be most likely the way to do it because then in that theory you would discover what consciousness really is, take the movie chappie, it's basically based on this, but it doesn't matter if you figure out how to make us immortal, you will still die while your copied version of yourself remains alive, it's the same as cloning, that's not really you, that's just you reincarnated, it won't have a soul or spirit, it will simply die like a computer dies and it will go nowhere.

    when you die however, if you believe in god or don't doesn't matter if god exists, then god is the source to all that exists which includes your mind, your data, your everything, meaning that makes god the source of it all, you can copy yourself all you want, but that will never make it you. You can't outrun the devil, your messing with shit you don't fully understand, and I am not saying stop your experiments and tell you to go back to church, I am actually curious whether or not this is possible, just understand that you copying yourself will never be "you", only if your figure out what makes consciousness us and are able to not only understand what the soul is but transfer that into another body the other body or vessel becomes dead afterwards, that is tansferrance, avatar hit the nail on the head with that, even if they did it using trees on an alien planet, reincarnation is a cheap knock off way to stay alive or immortal, I think you should focus on transferring yourselves rather than copying yourselves.

    Be cool in maximum 10 years will be possible. In present it's an microchip that connects on your brain using tiny microscopic wires and let you control devices with your brain wirelessly. You can just think to click like on this comment or video and would be happened. If you have intelligent house you just can think to turn on or off lights , you can change TV programs , volume etc with your brain :) from this won't be much time till brain uploading:)

    This is a dangerous game. We have to be very careful with how we approach this tech. Uploading ourselves is way more than downloading our consciousness. We ourselves are consciousness; but our awareness that we ARE conscious is how we recognize beauty, awe, and love. If we download just awareness without it's ability to recognize itself as aware, it would be no different than an animal with the primal instincts of survival and attaining more. It will be a new race of animalistic, mind driven machines

    You're not downloading disease and illness and a dying body...so by "cloning" yourself, you no longer care about the original and move on with the new and improved. I'm not thinking like using an identical clone to accomplish tasks for me. If I'm uploading myself into a digital copy, I'm digital for eternity...or until my CPU goes boom or my memory storage gets erased.

    This is interesting, mind copy just like sublimation from Ace Combat 3 game. But however, in AC3 it's more diversed as sublimation is not just copying mind, but also body, which later the copy of someone's body would live in Electrosphere after being uploaded. By the way, the game is set around 2040 with fictional world.

    When it comes to this, if you make a copy of yourself it’s not exactly you since it’s a copy. If you wanted to be in a computer or a robot, you would basically have to do a direct transfer of your brain. But the tough part about this is how are we suppose to transfer our brains process of thought that makes you you without having to transfer your actual brain over? You wouldn’t exactly want yourself to be connected to the computer. Your human body would have to die basically. If you ever wanted a direct transfer of yourself. But everything contains atoms, electrons, neutrons etc. so I don’t think it’s impossible to actually become an ai. It would just be very complicated. Also if you did make a direct copy of yourself it would be you, at least for them. It is you, so it will have all the emotions and thoughts of the original person. But the original person would never be the copy.
