At the pace our technological advancements are going, it will soon be possible to completely copy a human brain and save it digitally. But if your brain is digitally uploaded and saved, does that mean you are immortal? Would your brain be “you,” or just a copy of you? For one thing, we cannot really address whether “consciousness” can be uploaded until we completely define consciousness. And we will not know whether that digital consciousness is actually the same as the person until we try it out. That will lead to questions of personality, existence, and soul, which are more complex than even copying a complete brain. What could possibly go wrong? Well, someone might accidentally delete you, or the power may go out. You might upload to 99% and get stuck. You know how that goes. Or it could be worse.
