Do we really, truly, want this guy around for the next 3,000 years?
If someone offered you an “immortality” consisting of a wax dummy of yourself that endlessly repeated some of your favorite catch-phrases, you wouldn’t buy it. But if Me 2.0 was made of a lot fancier technology, what then?
All of this “live forever!” schiff boils down to simulation: some thing, created by men’s hands, will continue to imitate you long after you’re gone.
Otherwise… Good grief, think about a world in which the politicians never die!
