what is a mindclone
What is a Mindclone?
  • A Software Version of Your Mind
  • Mindfiles that are being used

and updated by mindware that

has been set to be a functional

equivalent replica of one’s mind

  • Software-based alter-ego,

doppelganger, or mental twin

  • A being that objectively shares with an original being a commonality of identity and subjectively each consider themselves to be a common being
what is a futuristic person
What is a Futuristic Person?
  • An entity that, but for its as yet unrealized form and/or function, would otherwise be recognized by the law as having the rights and obligations of a person
  • Mindclones
  • Artificially conscious beings
  • ‘Uplifted’ consciousness
how do mindclones qualify as futuristic persons
How Do Mindclones Qualify As Futuristic Persons?
  • They will function precisely like biological originals function
  • Ergo, but for their as-yet

unrealized form and function,

they would have the rights

and obligations of original

biological humans

what can mindclones learn from the magna carta
What Can Mindclones Learn from the Magna Carta?
  • It reflects a thousand year-old consensus that from time immemorial beings who were deserving of due process must be granted due process.
  • While most laws become irrelevant with the advance of technology and ethics, the importance of fundamental fairness, including equal protection, appears to be timeless.

what can mindclones learn from the magna carta1
What Can Mindclones Learn from the Magna Carta?
  • “NO Freemanshall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right.” (Restatement in Clause 29 of the legislatively enacted 1297 version of so-called Clause 39 (Blackstone, 1759) of the original 1215 Great Charter.
  • In short, mindclones need to demonstrate they are “freemen”, i.e., beings deserving of “due process”

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Mindclones will be able to objectively demonstrate consciousness equivalent to original biological human consciousness
  • Original biological human consciousness is recognized with legal personhood
  • Mindclones will be granted future legal personhood
  • The future legal personhood of mindclones will be shared with, but can be divorced from, or can succeed, that of their biological original
