Illnesses and injuries in our present existence stop many people from completing any one stage of life or even most of them. If these stages were different because of Contingent immortality 2 and 3, especially 3 that would be of little consequence from the point of view that there could be no human like stages of accomplishment. It would just…[Read more]

An amazing android. I wish the report had gone into, if deep learning was employed. I would tend to believe deep learning would cancel the likeness of the recreated person without a tremendous amount of depth than just some memory snippets.

No, we don’t need another study to tell us anything. I am suspicious or question all studies, even if they point in a direction I like. Studies can be made to point in any direction. For example a recent supposed meta study of foods containing saturated fats said there was nothing wrong with them. The other researchers countered that the study…[Read more]
Once scanning and 3d printing has the resolution to beyond cellular then that will be extremely significant. Significant for artificial organs made from their own cells. Even now it could be used to get accurate 3d models of a persons bones, to make accurate prostheses in case of injury.

It never really had a monopoly on real human values but after 9/11 the only small things that might have set it apart were broken down. I mean torture and mass surveilance.
