I hope so, it appears to be among the best available options.
However, I prefer to focus on finding ways to link additional cognitive
units as first-order parts of my mind using a neural interface. Whether
it will eventually be possible to completely obsolete my current brain
is a wide open question. I plan to address that question experimentally.
