So, the entire Human race is cloned?
Interesting, but I’ve never
heard of that particular directive having been implemented, let alone achieved. I’m well aware of other, far
more aggressive and wide-spread populace replacements, but they were of a tactical nature and little to do with rescue.
Amplifying DNA up to the extent of building an actual, self-aware molecular organism is, and has been possible for some time, obviously. But it is
well known that they are prone to what we now term as cross-dimensional induction lapses – the attraction of supernormal knowledge; ie. awareness -
and thus are extremely hard to repopulate with an already extant consciousness.
possible to “override” this awareness by inducing a perma-chemical persistent vegetative state in the clone, but this results in the
clone’s potential new consciousness being nothing but a passenger in an automaton, along for the ride with bareley a sense of self-hood. You can’t
suppress life, awareness, and that’s a fact.
Even if you were able to, somehow, mute the consciousness - the subjectivity, change, continuity, selectivity and what is delightfully termed
“aboutness” - of billions
of people, are you aware of the sheer complexity of transferring all of them over without having a colossal loss
Even if you were to utilise a super large scale, biological classical-communication storage facility, what about the sheer amount of noise generated
by all those disparate minds, as it widely acknowledged that even with an incredibly fast unconditionally secure quantum commitment capability,
the back up of protocols of quantum oblivious transfer, you will still
get degradation on a huge scale.
It would be too much to reliably commit to any sort of storage facility, even the largest
entangled military probabilistic engine.
