This isn't an upload, though, of course. At best, starting with your own
DNA, it would be a 'digital sibling'. And I'd expect we wouldn't be
starting with anyone's DNA, but rather a distillation of everyone's,
with variations thrown in, as in the story.
Interesting, and potentially useful, but naturally it won't achieve the
aim of uploading.
