Hi Giulio,

Great post, but your missing the most important possible part of this 
kind of mind communication or interconnection - the ability to eff the 
ineffable as described in the theory of consciousness camp with the most 
scientific consensus here:


In other words, you'll be able to tell, via such mind connected effing, 
how many of your friends represent 700nm light with a different kind of 
phenomenal red than your brain does, and how many people represent it 
with the same phenomenal red as you. (as in:  "Oh THAT is what red is 
like for you!").

And eventually this will lead to merging of our phenomenal worlds, in 
ways that our phenomenal knowledge of ourselves (has no referent in 
reality, unlike most of the rest of our phenomenal knowledge) will be 
able to travel into other's phenomenal worlds of awareness, and so on.  
Again, all as predicted by the theories described in the above camp.  
And as ever more experts (see: http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/53/11) 
contribute to this open survey about the best theories of consciousness, 
this camp continues to extend its lead in the amount of scientific 
consensus it has compared to all other theories of consciousness.

This consensus theory also predicts what 'phenomenal uploading' will be 
like which will of course not only free ourselves from the mortal, veil 
of perception prison walls that are our skulls, but allow us to discover 
much more than just the behavior of the universe, and yes, of course, 
also become immortal.
