ok, this discussion is really brining the iconoclast out of me:
and control it with exterior neural reading? same way these guys learned how to read vocal chord nerves:
but with a higher scanning resolution for the entire body, controlling a virtual body in the same time your controlling your real life one, without even having to do the same gestures and motions in real life (like they don't need to actually speak). no big decisions, no big surgeries, just all the affects of "a brain implant" on stuff you can get at best-buy?
this means that - assuming our physical selfs aren't the fastest possible thinking and feeling mechanisms in the universe - it wouldn't matter if your field is music, art, coding, design, trading in financial asset, acting, or anything in which your main use is your mind, the processing time as a virtual entity could become a hell of a lot faster, and you'd be able to produce a lot more of whatever it is you produce while investing a lot more subjective time in it. they'd also have plenty of more time to figure out how to make cheaper and better robotics for physical labor. not to mention that imorbidity would eventually bring them centuries and millenia of expeirnence in different fields.. can you imagine the resume?
this means it might become impossible for those who don't upload our minds to economically compete. they would be the equivilent of an extremely poor 3rd world country. so what if ulpoading your mind becomes the only way to get a job?
