An interesting concept. Not sure how it would work in practice. It raises an interesting question as to whether you would actually be living forever or it would simply be many different people sharing your memories.sykkelmannen wrote: ↑Fri May 24, 2019 4:00 pmBody. A vessel for consciousness without any psychological properties. You'd shed your old body like you would worn out clothes, and buy yourself another one (if you had the means). Your identity remained the same, just physical appearance changed.
In this show, consciousness was immortal as long as it was downloaded on the "stack" which was placed in the cervical vertebrae. If the stack got physically destroyed, it meant perma[nent]-death. So you could live forever switching worn out bodies, as long as you had the money to buy them and avoided headshots.
Similarly, if you and the other person switched consciousness, so that the other body is being tortured, but with your memories, is that a selfish or unselfish action for you to take? It would depend on whether or not you believe it is the memories that make up who you are or purely the physical "sleeve".
