Post-human migration to surrogate replacement android bodies sounds cool.
It wouldn't impact population much since anyone joining the ranks of 'immortality' would be giving up their biological body, and the ability to
reproduce. Further, and android surrogate replacement body wouldn't necessarily require the same kinds and sorts of resources for sustained
'living' as a person's natural body.
I'd certainly love the chance to go on living forever.
From the perspective of the rich, there wouldn't necessarily be any advantages in not allowing the average masses of regular people to have access to
Everyone being allowed to migrate to an android body for the chance of 'immortality' would create a market for replacement parts, software upgrades,
accessories, specialized attachments/features/abilities, and a whole new niche for making money off of the newly immortal.
For instance the 'basic' model replacement android body doesn't come with sex parts, or synthetic skin, or wireless communication, and only has a
limited capacity short term power supply, where if someone wants to upgrade, they can do so at the initial order for cheaper, or much later at a
little more extra expense for purchase of upgrades piecemeal.
Further, people migrating over to surrogate android replacement bodies could rejoin the workforce and possibly even out perform their natural
biological coworkers, making the newly 'immortal' android migrants a valuable addition to competitive business.
It looks like such a proposition, if ever possible, feasible, and successful would be a win, win, for everyone concerned.
It'd be like new cars for everyone, everyone that can afford them, where the wealthy have the latest coolest most accessorized models, and regular
people get by with consumer level bodies, slaves to constant maintenance routines, and replacement parts for the shoddy consumer level equipment
they're stuck with.
