Mind blown  :o :o :o ... Love people like this though, even if he doesn't reach his goal, who knows what he'll discover

I like this quote:

Itskov is more sanguine: "I will answer you to the question of ethics by the opinion which was given to me by his holiness the Dalai Llama when I visited him in 2013. His point was that you can do everything if your motivation is to help people."

and the idea of this:

Itskov is already planning his endless life. "For the next few centuries I envision having multiple bodies, one somewhere in space, another hologram-like, my consciousness just moving from one to another."

nice read.

ya it's a pretty crazy concept. i've been joking around about it for a long time too. here's some description of a bot I am coding at times:

A benchmarking irc bot & a glimpse into my inevitable life extension through bot coding.

Imagine all of the replication that would take place if you were able to map yourself into software. If you were able to control the internals of the os/devices, you would constantly be replicating in order to survive. You could pass on knowledge, hardcoded/saved in some few gigabyte xz compressed bundle.. or you could create these huge shared knowledge databases via pptp networks. It would just get nutty. You'd have to become a living exploit in order to "stay alive". Then hackers without the ability to save themselves to software, would attempt to reverse engineer you/modify you, in order to tweak your traits for their personal gain; this unique copy of yourself could be used to attack the financial industry and make a bunch of russians rich.

Being mapped to some form of conscious software "in the net" would just be mind blowing, to say the least.

It's definitely a different angle on AI.. instead of creating this evolution of intelligence, figure out how to map it and then let it evolve from there.
