Brain Emulation

Humanity may gain a capacity for brain emulation, sometimes called "mind uploading," through advancements in information science, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. This process would involve the virtualization of brain and body functions, enabling their extension or transition beyond biological limits. It implies the translation of cognitive and physical abilities into formal computational formats, while still requiring some form of embodiment. This vision suggests not just replication but enhancement of brain and body functions, offering new modes of existence and interaction, potentially including practical immortality.
