Download Your Mind into Another Body? To No Longer Die Changes Everything


At some point this century, we will confront the prospect of immortality, says award-winning journalist Steven Kotler. After our bodies die, it will be possible to upload our minds into a computer, and then download them into another body. The implications for humanity are difficult to fathom.

As Kotler says, the basic engine of evolution is death — by physically adapting to our environment, our genes are preserved long enough to pass to the next generation. But human culture would also be thrown into uncharted territory.

Religious systems claims to guide the morality of human action, and they posit what exists after our natural death, so it’s unclear what claim these dogmas would have to human behavior in a world where we live forever.

Kotler’s latest book is, Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World.
