some of you are clueless about how we're going to achieve immortality through cybernetics.
the easiest layment term anyone can some up with is to simply create "nanobots" smaller than blood cells which could replicate themselves using the atoms/matter in our body. Why would we do this? because the nanobots would then enter our brain and replace each cell (most people think the brain is just cells so I'm going to stick with cells) one at a time with a artificial cell. now think for a second, why does time matter? why change one at a time... why not change a lot at a time? that is what uploading is. it isn't uploading our memory to a computer... that computer would be a separate entity and we would still exist in our primitive form... we need to merge, convert, evolve into ... not clone.
now that is a primitive way of achieving immortality, the other suggestion would be to reverse engineer our biology so that we do not age, by either replacing our organs through surgery, or to simply let science figure out a way to replenish our bodies with pills or new types of food to swallow which could repair our organs.
therefore, if one is anti technology, in the future the human could choose whether to remain a human... and die of old age, or whether the human wants to live as an immortal in a biological body or become an artificial organism such as a cyborg or android or simply a box inside a huge data center roaming the universe.
when you ask a futurist or a transhuman (person who wants to become a cyborg or something greater) the question "what would you do with all your free time" is a question no creature today can answer that originates from this planet. the reason is simply because of this...
cats do not think about putting soup in a microwave, cats do not think of calculus and algebra... cats obviously do not know nor think about what it would be like to explore the universe utilizing a spaceship... they are primitive creatures that are mostly bored their entire life times wondering where to their next meal will be.
humans are creatures which can only speak, think and elaborate on things they have discovered, they do not have the ability to think of something original, without roots coming from somewhere. humans basically are only capable of understanding patterns and being able to manipulate them into newer mutations, hence evolution.
this means that no human today knows what it would be like to be a creature with a trillion fold intelligence, no human knows what there is to do once you have conquered the entire universe... aka space exploration... because space exploration is our current limit of how we understand things, we have absolutely no clue what we would do aside from war/conquest while doing space exploration... we would expand, while we are traveling we would live in virtual reality living/playing in virtual worlds like eve online, we would watch movies, play sports etc... no human knows what a cyborg would do with its time, it is impossible to think outside of what we currently know. we can not somehow come up with an idea out of nothingness... we need roots, we need background, we need some form of influence.
how will we figure out to upload ourselves? by mapping the entire brain with technology, and then reverse engineering it one baby step at a time... we'll start with implants that give us brain interfaces through our eyes, then we'll come up with ways to expand our memory and so on so forth. the first augmented humans will be 1% artificial and 99% biological... with time this will change to 99% artificial and 1% biological and eventually become pure 100% artificial.
it's pretty simple, if you want a more advanced lesson on how we are going to go through this evolution... type in google "transhuman books" or "books on cybernetics/bionics" or something of that sort.
