Most people have not had such a delicious,fabulous joyride here,that they are so loathe to let go that they would go to such a length to remain here
at all+any cost.And if some did-tough sheets for those-this grotesquery will always only be for a select few.Well,imo.

I understand completely what you are saying. I myself remember pre-existing as a soul (Bodiless awareness) prior to being born in a body. Since I was
a child, this place(earth) to me has been hell/prison, with ego, drunkenness, brokenness, war, disease, pestilence, rapes, pillage, etc.
However, I have come to know Love, friendship, success, indian food(my fav), the beauty of a woman's body, my dog being my best friend, a sunset, a
moonlit summer sky, etc etc.
Now me, I'm fine with letting go and returning to the source hence forth I came from. However, I understand the mentality of a rich individual (I
worked for a self made multi-millionare before), and have seen the extent to which they are wrapped in their worries, control, power, money, lust for
more, etc. And this kind of person will go out of their way to have their brain transplanted into a robot body to continue running the empire they
worked so hard to build. In particular, those who's lives are joy rides, will wish to take advantage of this tech the most
Dominicus I don't think it will ever be an issue for at least 95% of the global population-to the rabble,the swineous swultitude like us peasants,it
will never be made available-and thank whatever deities that may exist for that.Most people don't live their lives in such a way that they have to
"fear the reaper" to such a ridiculous extent+nor the afterlife,whatever it turns out to be.Most people have dull average humdrum lives,some work
hard all their lives because they have no choice.From their late 40's on they start making peace with the fact that they will depart here some years
in the future,and either go someplace else,to some afterlife or reincarnate again.
Yes I agree. I'd even say 99% won't have access to this. But hear me out. What if that 1% in robot bodies, have immunity from a massive global
pandemic that wipes out everyone but them? From there on out, they would continue their own progeny by using the very tech, A.I. software, and
stem-cell brains to continue a sort of reproduction process to rebuild earth via Bionic-Beings. Or they can plan something along these lines to be a
purposeful kill shot.
Another angle to look at, since we all use cell phones and have used GPS to help us get to a destination, is that merging with technology does have
some benefits. For example, if you have an A.I. (Siri assistant) type of software downloaded into your brain, and your driving to work in the
morning. You have 2 ways to get there. Highway or use the streets. LEt's say they both look somewhat traffic-y.
So you ask the AI, what are the best stats/odds to get you there the quickest? That AI, would then instantly scan the last 100 years of stats based on
Monday mornings/partly cloudy/ 8a.m/month/day/year, etc and give an answer that really is the best option. Something your own brain would need a week
to figure out based on inputting data into a spreadsheet.
Or for example, some guy winks at you. You think he's cute, but you had a few glasses of wine. That AI can look at the body language, facial
features, eye color, look at stats based on all of that and where you meet him, and let you know that there's a 90% chance that all he wants is a One
night stand. Something you would never have been able to figure out based on your wine impairment.
Also, there are areas of the brain the light up for those who experience God and those who have 50,000 hours of meditation under their belts. Just
slip on a special helmet, and BOOM, access to your own spirituality.
In some aspects, the rich transferring brains into robots can be real bad. In other aspects, merging with tech allows us to communicate in this forum
and find our way around town.
There's a real fine line between the two
