When we built this second brain which is an exact copy of the first brain, and the second brain also develops a consciousness...how can THIS consciousness be different from that of the first brain? If the mechanics (which I simply assume in this philosophic idea) are the exact same and the brain consists of exactly the same parts? Would we create two different persona even when the "construction" is exactly the same?
This film by Ken Gumbs tackles the issue of pending greater-than-human artificial intelligence and the possible ramifications. Different individuals with different backgrounds are interviewed on the subject, including a theologian, a philosopher, a brain builder and a cyborg. A wide spectrum of topics are discussed, including trans-humanism, mind-machine mergers, uploading, and artificial super-intelligence.
