Immortality

  • Would a person whose liver been replaced with a cloned one still be human?

  • Would a person whose eyes been replaced with cloned ones still be human?

  • What if these eyes were genetically modified to see also in UV and IR spectrum?

  • What if the person’s brain has also been enhanced to handle more visual information?

  • What if the person was implanted witha processor that increases brain power?

  • What if the person’s skin was nano-coated with a solar power layer to run the processor?

  • What if the person’s brain was gradually replaced by processors as it ages and becomes less efficient?

  • What if the person’s brain was scanned and uploaded into a robot?

  • Is there any difference between a robot with a human consciousness and a nano-coated solar-powered humanoid with a hybrid brain?

  • Could you kill a robot with a human consciousness?


Homework

Homework:

  • Creative Writing:

    Imagine and describe a future in which people can live to 800 and can improve their bodies and minds either organically or technologically. A future in which human consciousness can be uploaded into computer networks or robots. A future in which artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence, and there will be a possibility of fusing the two together.

  • What kind of society would it be?

  • What are the dangers? What are the benefits?

  • What problems and moral dilemmas would they face?

  • If you were the ruler, what laws would you put in place?
