What a good idea for a thread. But, this, I don't agree with:
I mean what exactly happens when a clone is made? Where does this new clones consciousness come from? Does a cloned human or alien simply attain a
soul when it is cloned? I highly doubt that...
I think that any life created would have a soul, just as a body is a person, and that entity, just like you and me really, is alive.
nature of life, if the body has a brain, is conscious, communicates with others, etc., then I would assume a soul is involved and attached. Because I
believe consciousness indicates the presence of a soul.
Now, I could be wrong, but I don't think so, which is what makes cloninig so egregious, if what you describe with a "soul transfer" is being done.
This has to be achieved with the help of technology. So we must assume the body is augmented, somehow, with a chip or some other device, that makes
this upload possible, in the first place.
If the original consciousness of the body is supplanted, it must go somewhere, be drained somehow in some way, to be supplanted by the upload of
another body's consciousness as you describe.
Were you familiar with the "flap" around here about member, Astr0?
I ask, because, he was describing to some of us in personal messages that the black triangles we've seen are for a particular purpose. This purpose
was to inject dreams into the population at night, while asleep, and then cull the energy from the dreaming population by flying over said population
with the black triangles. He claimed the energy they created and culled was needed by them for superior and lightening fast computer processing.
So, if that's true, then we can assume there is a way to harness the energy output of the human consciousness as it works to process. And if that
were true, then your hypothetical here takes a darker turn, even, then you've described, which no one would really want to think about. And that is,
that if such augmentation exists, and I hesistate to use the description as it' s been used in hoaxes, so I won't, because I don't want your idea to
go that way before we've fully explored it, as I think it should be explored.
The darker turn I speak of, is this information would all indicate that it's possible to take a living consciousness, a soul, and cull it completely
for its energy.
I'll sit with that a minute, and let you do the same, to absorb it, though I doubt it's a new idea to you, since you started this thread and line of
eta: I really think this whole thing starts here: artificialtelepathy.blogspot.com...
