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.

  • 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:

  • the most terrifying prospect of this in my opinion comes from the idea of coexistance with yourself. not the concept of living with your mind, but the fact that presumably in the process of transfer there is a 50/50 chance that you will actually be uploaded and instead you just wake up with a digital copy of yourself. that uttery terrifies me to think about because it means that there is a me that will live forever, but i won't. there will be a me that experiences everything there is to experience, but i won't. i don't think i'd be able to live with that. and even if the body doesn't wake up and gets stored somewhere or just dies and gets thrown away then that would arguably be worse because that means that you tried to upload yourself and you failed. you didn't make it, something else did. that would be awful. tl;dr if i get uploaded, i want to be the mind not the body.

  • I think the problem is that even when mind upload will be a thing,the copy of your brain will just be a copy of you but your consciousness will still stay in your physical body so you will not be immortal,there will be another you that is. The real you will still die and your mind will cease to exist. But for a person who is looking for the side it will look like the digital brain of you is really 'you' when really they just killed you by cutting your brain into pieces.

  • Copying a full brain, or even a little part of it is very hard and resource consuming, but what if we could copy the DNA of an organism, maybe change it in some way and make it develop in a simulation, into something more complex? P.S. Apologies in case this was already commented by someone. P.S. 2 For some reason when I write comments they copy, so don't be mad if you see it twice.

  • No matter what we do, it doesnt guarantee inner subjective conscious experience, and thats impossible because physicalism is just an assumption far from truth. We know that consciousness cannot be limited to physiological mind, because in that way it will lead to paradox, Here's how? 1. If consciousness is simply the product of epiphenomenal events of physiological brain, then our consciousness is just an illusion. 2. We know that all the intuition we have including our 5 sense is due to our consciousness. 3. Since the consciousness itself is illusion. 4. All the material-reality that we perceive through our inner subjective consciousness is also an illusion. 5. Threfore material reality does not exist. 6. But we just discussed in point no. 1 that consciousness itself solely the product of epiphenomenal events in the physiological brain (i.e. material brain) . This is the paradox. Therefore consciousness must have an immaterial existance. Since consciousness is immaterial existent, we can never achieve Transhumanism (uploading our mind in the computer). Let me know your thoughts.

  • Even if you succeed, what you actually do is a copy of your history and psychological profile that is sentient, but that won't still and ever be you anyway, just a "psyche" copy, however if you make it, I suppose it would run on a quantum computer. The quantic theories about our consciousness and our brain are intriguing, maybe there is more than just neurons or hormones to consider. That's what I think at least.

  • If uploading our minds is possible, will humans still seek, fight, obsess over religions, power struggles etc ? Wouldn't that be a stage where we transcend multiple areas of limited human understanding ? Since we become digital, most of our negative and positive human tendencies tend to decrease, won't they ?

  • We couldnt imagine to listen to chirp of a bird again, repeatedly some years ago. We couldnt imagine to catch and save a beautiful view but then we created photography, television, discs, flash cards and so on. So that could be a real thing in some way. But that would be great if we could just save thoughts and ideas if a human, the way he thinks, that we could learn some things better, and i mean, as we save information on computers, as we save text in word file. It would be truly terrifiyng if we could get inside ones mindand hack it. But it eould be amazing to record the way one thinks. Imagine if we could play Einsteins or Hawkings or Teslas thoughts, as we push button and play music. That may evulutionize our science and progress our society. But just be able to record some things, and not more 😅😅😅

  • If you believe in "mind uploading" then you must also accept the a prori postulate of Cartesian Dualism. But here's the thing: There's no good reason to accept Cartesian Dualism. If you're sufficiently read in current psychology and philosophy you probably already **don't** subscribe to Cartesian Dualism. In fact, science (especially nutrition science) is now demonstrating all the ways in which the secretions of the non-brain portions of the body affect the consciousness in avenues such as memory, mood, personality, perceptive ability (focus) and so on. For example: The immune response, blood glucose balance, gut micro biome, endocrine system, sex hormones and intestinal secretions of serotonin can all severely perturb (or enhance) the quality of one's thought and focus to the point where prolonged disturbances can lead to permanent or semi-permanent cognitive impairments like Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, ADD, psychological disorders (anxiety/depression) or autism spectrum disorders. So Who's Mind is it Anyway? Is it whatever portions of cognition that may be isolated solely to the brain of the cranium? If so, this is certainly a truncated "you" which is bereft of the essential affects and coloration of the consciousness which produces "unique" individual variations in mood, personality and cognitive ability. The body *is* a mind and the mind *is* a body (a discrete system of causal mechanisms).

  • scary part of all this, is that even if we could recreate consciousness, it’s not the same thing as transferring it. the copy of your mind is not the real you. the real you will die, and the new copy of you will continue to exist, meaning you will still face and go through death, which kind of ruins the whole point. the bigger goal should be the goal of being able to completely TRANSFER consciousness, not just recreating it.
