Give time to time Sabrina. Probably this will be a common first
reaction after the first deployment of mind uploading technology. But
after some time, people won't even think twice about it, just like we
don't think twice about the magic device in our pocket which lets us
talk immediately with people far away. Like in the universe of Richard
K. Morgan novels (google Takeshi Kovacs), where uploading technology
is commonplace and used routinely.
