Abstract: “I do think, however, there is a (natural) tendency to way
overestimate the importance of copying our brain structure to copying
our minds. I think our minds will be uploadable in good enough shape
to satisfy most everyone by reconstructing them from information
stored in software mindfiles such as diaries, videos, personality
inventories, saved google voice conversations, chats, and chatbot
conversations. The reconstruction process will be iteratively achieved
with AI software designed for this purpose, dubbed mindware.“
Martine Rothblatt is an American lawyer, author, and entrepreneur.

communication satellite law, and eventually in life sciences projects

United Therapeutics. In 2004, Rothblatt launched the Terasem Movement,

and the prospect of technological immortality via personal

is to prevent death by preserving sufficient information about a
person so that recovery remains possible by foreseeable technology.
