Why is my field full of gits?
« on: December 24, 2008, 07:30:19 pm »

Has anyone else in the fields of computer science, computer engineering, or electrical engineering noticed this irritating fad of 'transhumanism'?

Basically, it's 'Rapture 2.0': we will eventually achieve immortality through cybernetic implants and, later on, simply uploading ourselves onto computers.

Basically, the premise is that simulation == duplication ... the digital representation of you is you. In other words, that stick figure guy in Torture Chamber 3 is not merely an animated stooge, but a real person deserving of our sympathy!

It's ridiculous ... hopefully everyone will get a pint of milk from this lolcow, and it will fizzle out and die quietly in the next ~25 years ...
