Mind uploading

Whole brain emulation ( WBE ), mind uploading or brain upload (sometimes called ” mind copying ” or ” mind transfer “) is the hypothetical process of scanning mental state (Including long-term memory and “self”) of a Particular brain substrate and copying it to a computer. The computer could then run a simulation model of the brain’s information processing, such that it responds in essentially the same way to the original brain (ie, indistinguishable from the brain for all purposes) and experiences having a conscious mind . [1] [2] [3] Continue Reading

Longevity escape velocity

Longevity escape velocity (sometimes referred to as Actuarial escape velocity [1] ) is a term used in the life extension movement. It is a hypothetical situation in which life expectancy is longer than the time that is passing. For example, in a given year in which longevity escape velocity would be maintained, Continue Reading
