[ExI] Essential Upload Data

I tend to agree with the idea that there's something more to a person
than the information encoded in the connectome. But perhaps this
"something more" is essentially the same for everyone.

I suspect that consciousness is really a physical state of matter. If
so human minds can be uploaded by 1) capturing the information
(memories etc.) encoded in a connectome, and 2) re-instantiating the
information in a matter substrate with the potential for
consciosuness. We’re on the way to achieving 1). Achieving 2) will
likely require new physics, but science is moving in that direction.
