Pop-culture[edit]

Is a section specifically discussing the topic in popular culture and/or media suitable or appropriate for inclusion in this article? -- dsprc [talk] 20:36, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Well there already is Mind uploading in fiction so I'm not sure what that section would feature? (Note that if "Mind uploading in fiction" isn't large enough in scope it could be moved to "Mind uploading in popular culture".) --Fixuture (talk) 22:11, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Speedup[edit]

In the section "Speedup" it is stated that in the future, transistors will have reached sub-atomic size. It is impossible for a transistor to be sub-atomic. The effects of an electron moving from one type of atom to another is what make transistors and other semiconductor components work. 71.29.14.207 (talk) 11:01, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

I've cut the entire section as blatant OR. Subatomic transistors, what on earth ... - David Gerard (talk) 13:56, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

The problem of immortality[edit]

Should this section be removed? There are no citations and is an opinion yet frames that opinion using factual terminology.

It also contradictes the overview section's sources re: a mind follows biological laws and does not arise from some magical or otherworldly quality.

I'm unsure how to proceed as I personally disagree with the opinion and 'two wrongs don't make a right'.

The problem of immortality

Though, in theory[further explanation needed], an uploaded, or copied version of an individual's brain would have the same memory and personality, the use of this process for eternal life (see Immortality) is in theory impossible for the simple reason that one would not be prolonging one's life, but simply creating another with the same experience. The creator, or original would feel no difference, and would still die of natural cause. In fact, the idea of mind uploading is likeable to cloning, and in the same way as a clone, the "copied" mind would not be the same as the origin, just a copy.[citation needed]
