Yes i agree someday the human concousness will live on for a long long time its just a matter or learning how to read the information in the brain and having the ability to move it into another body or even a type of computer system.Sorry about my spelling.

I guess I disagree with you guys, but I would love to live forever. However, I think this is because I don't believe in God. The thought of dying and there being nothingness scares the s**t out of me. I imagine this would be the same for alot of people which is why religion was created. Why would you get bored with immortality? There are so many endless possibilities on this planet.

Just to throw my two cents in, I'm not going to get into the ethics of weather we should, but mearly weather we could.
Simply put, yes we will reach a kind of immortalitly. Achieved through a combination of concious transference and cloning. If we look how much our technology has advanced this past century, then we see the rise of the "computer" to becoming the thing that now sits in front of you, holding more proccessing power than machines that put man on the moon. So when you see how much computer technology advances in a meare year, it's just obvious that at sometime soon, we will have developed AI, and the ability to put ourself into machines.
Onto cloning, If i'm correct, man first learned about DNA etc in the 20th century, and yet towards the end of it we had created a living breathing creature using, not nature but our own technology. (Dolly the sheep) So if i'm very generous with time here, then it's not unfeasble to say we can clone and grow humans in another 100 years. Then (generously again) we can say that in another 100 years after, man will have the ability to create human clones as a blank canvas. (without mind or conciousness).
So simply you just need to combine these to facts to realise that immortality of ones mind will be possible in time. But as to weather it should be ethicly possible, well thats an argument no one can every win, as we are all indivduals, so therefore will all have slightly varied opinions on the subject.

Well I guess I'm a freak, just like John Nada, cuz Dawm! I'd like to be immortal. Boring? Not at all! Just think about everything one guy will never have the chance to experience in a 100 years life-span. Of course, I'd see everyone else die, it'd be sad, etc etc.. But man, I'd trade my soul for immortality anytime! I could READ every little piece of work done by any human from any generation (that work worth of reading of course, not like David Iche stuff..), I could see future generations, inventions, philosophy, etc..

Plus I could be venerated like a god...lmao.. just kidding..

Have you ever read Greg Bear's "Eon," or any of the sequels?

Sci-fi I know, but he plays on this concept brilliantly. A small implant contains the persona and memories of the carrier. Generally people get two (I think) incarnations, and after that they're dumped into the "City Memory" to live out eternity in an ethereal form. A good read
