Digital Mindfiles Computer-Storable Reflections of: Mannerisms Personality Recollections Feelings Beliefs Attitudes Values

Computer-Storable Reflections of:

Mannerisms

Personality

Recollections

Feelings

Beliefs

Values

Not a Perfect Copy… But It Doesn’t Matter An analog of the psychological essence of a person No such thing as a perfect copy of anything Minds always change What matters are patterns, sense of self and sense of continuity

An analog of the psychological essence of a person

No such thing as a perfect copy of anything

Minds always change

What matters are patterns, sense of self and sense of continuity

Close Enough is Good Enough

Caravaggio’s Vision of Abraham Ready to Sacrifice His Son

Rembrandt’s View of Abraham’s Readiness to Sacrifice His Son There are many different ways to remember something… But there are a limited number of patterns of recollection!

It’s Clear That Mindfiles Need Not Even Approach 100% Normal People Remember Only a Small Percent of What They Experience Mannerisms, Personality, Feelings, Beliefs, Attitudes & Values Are: Not infinitely variable and unique Finite sets that repeat across people Minor variations not material Recollections & combinations create uniqueness

Normal People Remember Only a Small Percent of What They Experience

Mannerisms, Personality, Feelings, Beliefs, Attitudes & Values Are:

Not infinitely variable and unique

Finite sets that repeat across people

Minor variations not material

Recollections & combinations create uniqueness

Fascinating Mindfile Facts: Estimated Number of… Few dozen Emotions 7% - 13% Adult’s thoughts retained per day 6 Universal facial expressions Few dozen Personality sub-types Several hundred Recognizable faces Up to 7 items for 3 - 20 seconds An adult’s short term memory

So What Makes Us Unique? Dozens (n) of mannerism personality & feeling types (m) yield many thousands of unique combinations (n!) / (m! * (n-m)!) Differential recollections, beliefs, attitudes & values create billions of unique combinations

Dozens (n) of mannerism personality & feeling types (m) yield many thousands of unique combinations

Definitions of Life Biology Thermodynamic Information Theory Legal

Biology

Thermodynamic

Information Theory

Legal

According to Biologists, Life Is That Which Is Organized Takes Energy from Environment Responds to Stimuli Reproduces Develops Adapts to Environment

Is Organized

Takes Energy from Environment

Responds to Stimuli

Reproduces

Develops

Adapts to Environment

Do Mindfiles Preserve Life? No Autonomy Multi-Platforms Adapt to Environment No Autonomy Mindfiles Grow Develop Only Viral Copy Mindfiles Reproduce Not all Stimuli Eg Chatbots Responsive Not the Bits Electricity Extract Energy Not Enough Data Structure Organized I Say NO I Say YES Biological Criteria

Thermodynamic & Information Theoretic Definitions of Life Thermodynamic: Localized decrease in entropy Information Theoretic: Sufficiently ordered information so as to recreate a being

Thermodynamic: Localized decrease in entropy

Information Theoretic: Sufficiently ordered information so as to recreate a being

100,000+ Bainbridge Questions  Local Entropy & Preserve Order

Geo-Coded Bemes  Local Entropy & Preserve Order

Are Mindfiles IT or Thermodynamically Alive? Can’t Be Quantum If Sufficiently Detailed IT Replicable Not Growing When Static Order Grows With Uploads Continuous Increase Not Localized Enough Digital Storage Media Localized Region Mindfiles Are NOT Alive Mindfiles ARE Alive Factor

So, Do Mindfiles Preserve Life? I Say YES Just Say NO “ It’s a tautological debate.”

DeSpelder LA. Strickland AL. 2005. The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying. 6th Ed. New York, N.Y.: McGraw Hill. P. 211 Brain Death: An individual who has sustained either (1) irreversible cessation of circulatory and respiratory functions, or (2) irreversible cessation of all functions of the entire brain , including the brain stem, is dead.

When Technology Advanced, the Definition of Life Changed

Ergo, When Mindfiles Are Revived, They’ll Be Called Alive Dead Heart + No Transplant = S/he Is Dead Dead Heart + Transplant = S/he Was Alive Dead Mind + No Mindplant = S/he Is Dead Dead Mind + Mindplant = S/he Was Alive If brain functions, such as memory, are retained ex vivo isn’t the person still alive?

Do Mindfiles Preserve Life Preserved life ≠ being alive “ Preserved” means “protect…something from danger of being killed or damaged.” Mindfiles per se protect information of a life Is the information of a life equivalent to a life?

Preserved life ≠ being alive

“ Preserved” means “protect…something from danger of being killed or damaged.”

Terasem Hypotheses 1. The creation of sufficiently detailed mindfiles will enable future mindware to revive an analog of the consciousness that created the mindfiles. 2. Consciousness revived from mindfiles can be downloaded into nano-bio and/or cellular-regenerated bodies to joyfully continue the life reflected in the mindfiles.
