and if yes which animal would you download yourself? and why what would you do?



I always wanted to be an eagle to fly in the sky but once we will be able to do this even as humans i think the capability of this animal will become overrated.

Alternativly: I'd like to be a killerwhale, fast and furios I could explore the oceans and see how it is like to live under the sea.

what are your thoughts about all this ? and when do you think all this will happen? i believe that many humans are going to experience this at some point.

Could you please post topics in the correct section? This is about mind uploading, so it clearly belongs in Science/Tech.

I would be a Dog and Walk, Sleep and Eat every day because you hardly do anything.

Probably a small animal to get another perspective. I'd be a spider, eagle and a fox.

Another perspective, hmmm? Yeah! Being hunted by a predator! :biggrin:

But of course, before I download, I will make sure there is a fail safe such as if the predator manages to grab me it'll be electrocuted.

Probably a fast animal with good reflexes. Any kind of predator cat of a big size such as a Jaguar, Cheetah, etc. Be awesome to feel untouchable

Why not use a synthetic animal that is invulnerable? Who says it even needs organs? If I was able to be killed I'd just exist as an animal in vror be a t-rex.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of this whole thing?

Not if it is a really good synthetic copy. I might consider giving it a try, though I would want to make sure it is safe too, and some kind of synthetic of cyborg animal body is the way to go. Otherwise you might get eaten or something, and that isn't cool.

Or while becoming eaten by an animal, you could transform yourself into a bacterium and swim through the digestive tract. :)

Having said that, best form of defense is the ability to transform at will into anything you want. Of course, it's an extremely far-flung technology that may not be achievable at all.

I was watching squirrels the other day. I would do that for awhile, but only if I get their sense of balance.

wow, we have the same preference. id like to be a talking animal, preferably any animal that is fast and sinewy. also who says it will only be limited to animals. how about morphing yourself into an animal, yourself, and any mythical creature-man hybrid or something whenever you prefer in a day.

No way in hell I'd do 10 years, but I would really enjoy becoming an animal (any kind would be interesting, honestly) for an hour or so.

This. I certainly wouldn't want to be an animal for more than about an hour just to try it out.
