    I would like to live forever as long as I could choose when I no longer wanted to live. It would be cool to wander the universe.

    You win the thread for actually thinking outside the box and proving the capacity of N's.

    It seems like some people didn't read the entire post. You can have no, partial or complete control over their body. At first, I thought about the thought of killing the person inside the body. That was kind of tough, but then I saw a couple college girls walk by me and I don't feel bad anymore. What would Sylar do?



    The thought of picking another person to take over is too enticing, but the mere thought that there might be someone better to take over makes it sounds like I'm not making this body appealing enough. So, I'd have to go with someone's body that has qualities that I can't obtain on my own. Obvious choice would have to be a female.

    Physics, pffft--

    detailed enough MRI + complex enough software architecture, and hey presto, turtle's walking around saying, so you all thought you we're just monkey-boys, huh, well think again, ya sorry-assed, earth-bound, lamer emulations! Pity you fooz. Pitied ya yesterday, I'll pity ya tomorrow too.

    Metaphysics, however...


    What's a "feeling"? What's a "thought"? Can you have someone else's?

    Ya can't actually. If you have it, it's yours, even if it's a copy of someone else's.

    But someone else might be driving the system that produces that feeling for you, and then you'd be getting a feeling you might not have access to just by your lonesome... so...

    Would you choose too?

    I would kill off the original tenant after I made sure the body was healthy. I have no interest in sharing space or seeing what another person would do while I inhabited them.

    Interesting point. I originally thought it would be best to hop from human to human, after each body reached an expiration date.

    It's really difficult to determine what kind of evolution would take place, because there's nothing concrete about what exactly is being transferred. If I was going to take over a body, what about me is actually taking it over. My mind? Is there a such thing as a soul? Who knows. Seems too intangible to predict.

    Who says the tortoise offers this gig to just anyone?

    But if you want to go all hypothesizing the real reality that'd come if... well:

    People are born, brains are finite, computation isn't a mystery, the eventual development of hardware complex enough and suitably architectured to host and sustain the independent function of a mind is.... impossible?

    And someone's going to get sick and be about to die, and they'll change their will, putting all their money into a project that copies himself freely and fully into an AI.

    And once that starts happening with any regularity, then not one, but every single damn company in the biz will absolutely and totally invest billions in AI "highs"--software for an adrenaline rush, crack for computers, "Climax<tm>" will totally be the first product off the shelves...

    And then someone's going to make an interface tool...

    And then... what'll you chose?

    Me? Assuming I have the option of dying if I want to. It'd be pretty cool I think, especially if you also don't age physically. (Looking like a 30000 year old person would get pretty s***ty.)
