I think we're all here because we all somehow believe in the possibility of immortality in the virtual world, right? Experts say that the first possible thing that can be done is to transfer personal memories into virtual space. This has two ways of doing. One is what is known as "transhumanism" or mind uploading wherein the memories stored in a human's mind are copied and stored as a computer code. The other is uploading of human's life experiences using recording on devices which are capable of producing a virtual copy.
This transition is believed to be able to lead humans into becoming a virtual form of that individual which then leads to the possibility of not having to experience death. Why not? I'm only 30 and I still have a lot of plans in my life. If I can have more time in the virtual world to do all of those plans, I'll go for it.
