Sources & further reading:

The desire to be free from the limits of the human experience is as old as our first stories. We exist in an endless universe, only bound by the laws of physics and yet, our consciousness is trapped in mortal machines made of meat. With the breathtaking explosion of innovation and progress, for the first time the concept of leaving our flesh piles behind and uploading our minds into a digital utopia seems possible. Even like the logical next step on our evolutionary ladder.

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell Пре 2 месеца
Wow what a journey. Over a year ago CD Projekt Red got in touch and asked us if we would like to make a video about some of the scientific or philosophical aspects of Cyberpunk 2077. Just like most of the internet we were super excited and eager for this game to come out finally. The Witcher series is one of the most entertaining series we played ourselves and Cyberpunk seemed like it could genuinely top even that. So it was a super easy yes from us and we went on to make the video, putting in a lot of love and care to do this collaboration justice. And of course, as the release date got pushed back, our video release date did too. So we have been keeping this video a secret for quite some time, hopefully you like it. When this video comes out a good chunk of the Kurzgesagt team will either download or already be playing the game. If you want to get it too and support CD Projekt Red directly get the game here:

Sorry Kurzgesagt but living an eternity in a digital utopia is wrong and here's why: There will always be billions, quadrillions or sextillions of planets within our hubble sphere where life is having a very bad time (possibly much worse than here) and they could use our help. Every civilization capable of helping others can contribute to raising the average quality of life in the entire universe, even if said universe is infinite, provided everyone participates in their own region of space. Living a selfish super-happy eternal life will only be an option when space has expanded enough so everyone is out of everyone else's reach. So let's ride our stellar engine as fast as possible through our galaxy and have this eternal utopia discussion in a few trillion years when we spend the rest of our existence harvesting Milkdromeda's black hole's angular momentum with mirrors.

Sooo according the scientific notation of big numbers and b.c. inconsistent translations in billion/milliard: - 100 billion (neurons) = 1 * 10^11 or 10^2 * 10^9 - 1 million billion (connections) = 1 * 10^15 or 10^6 * 10^9 - 1 quadrillion (events) = also 1 * 10^15 (or 10^24 in british) so maybe you mean quintillion?? - 1 quintillion (maybe events) = 1 * 10^18 or 10^3 * 10^15 for reference, a gigabit is 10^9; so very simply put, a billion gigabit/second or a billion gigahertz. I guess we won't be installing FPGA AI chips on our optical nerves anytime soon :'(

Sorry, but I would totally do it. The only thing that makes any individual human "unique," is the specific dynamic pattern of neurons they have. This is what makes up your personality, memory, and everything that you are. Assuming perception is reality; when you upload your brain, you’ll have a 50% chance of opening your eyes in an immortal representation of yourself. We’ll all be dead in a hundred years anyway- I’d take those odds.

Why even mention immortality here. This is even more clear cut than the teleportation problem. The copy is NOT YOU in essence, "uploading" is just a copy. Its like having a baby but that baby has your identical mind. Its narcissistic reproduction!

the main problem is, that a scan of your consciousness that gets uploaded to a virtual reality is just a copy or you, not you. so what is the use of this? it is not immortality in a sense that your phenomenological experience is saved but just "immoratlity" in a narcisstic way that perserves your character in a virtual world with your own being dying not being able to see that.

The thing that you have to remember is that it wouldn't be... you. You would die with your biological brain and be unable to experience anything the copy is seeing. It's more of an AI based off of your brain functions.

I think you missed the point that when we experience all posssible experiences (past, other planets, etc) in our virtual minds, there will be no more “I”. Human knowledge will converge. We will all have experienced all life and its possibilities and we will work as One. One single consciousness. And this Single will then split as a hive when we send spaceships out there to explore other galaxies. We will live as one. But it wont lose anything by splitting or multiplying. Those concepts dont exist anymore. We will be everywhere. We will live as One, breathe as One, and dream all possible creative alternatives as One, learn as One, grow as One.

The factor that I’m particularly interested in regarding a simulated future is that two things will happen when we achieve a simulated reality: 1. Humanity will cease to exist 2. Reality will be indistinguishable from technology/simulation These being the only two options is quite concerning considering how fast technological innovation is growing and developing

As someone who has been doing a lot of deep learning research lately, the parallelism are fascinating. In deep learning, it is relatively easy to set up an algorithm, but once it starts “learning” with training it is impossible to edit or even understand why the neural network comes to the conclusions it does. You can put in an input and it spits out a response, and you can generalize the predictions it makes, but at the end of the day you can’t change even the slightest thing in the algorithm or else it will completely destabilize and need to start over. I’m curious if this is what it is like with digital consciousness, where we can “create” digital minds but have no way of manipulating or interpreting anything other than what an output is from a given input

well, this concept is also explained in a fictional story in Ready Player 2. In it, there is an eccentric scientist which makes a headset which controls all 5 senses of the body. You're supposed to put it on and you'll enter a virtual game that almost merges with reality. Because the headset controls all your sense organs, entering virtual reality almost feels like reality. There is also a file stored in the headset which makes a backup copy of your entire consciousness, meaning that you could be immortal forever. If you upload the backup in a robots database, it would behave entirely like a human. The way you could think, feel and act today will feel the same even after you die!

You cannot slice up the brain and simulate the brain because you lose state. That’s like putting a CPU under an electron microscope to see the picture on the screen. Once you lose state, you’re dead, the copy isn’t you.
