In the P. Lal translation of "The Dhammapada," the words are attributed to Gautama the Buddha:What happens if your mind lives for ever on the internet?It may be some way off, but mind uploading, the digital duplication of your mental essence, could expand human experience into a virtual afterlife
All fear dying.The fact that anyone might want to live, in whatever form, forever strikes me as a strong piece of evidence. Why would anyone even consider living forever, let alone take a shot at it? And ... is anyone likely to be any happier?
All fear death.
Still, talk about a mind-fucker.
Escape death????? Your aunt Fannie!
It's all enough to consider the gracious exit that might be provided by the barrel of a .38 placed beneath the chin.
