Digital Immortality - Download the Mind by 2050

People on Slashdot are ranting and raving about this article: Digital Immortality - Download the Mind by 2050

Some ranting it can't be done and others raving it can. Some arguing all that makes you who you are resides in yr brain and others on the side of caution and god "soul".

I'm not sure where the soul may lay or if we even have one, but I like to think a soul is nothing more then the energy that makes up yr body & mind as a whole. The very thing that gives it life ""the spark"" and makes it keeping going, day in and day out. Even when it doesn't want to or no longer can...

I also believe this energy resides in everything, alive or dead "dead by our standards" and is the reason we all feel connected to each other, the world, the universe, and everything around us...

I think long after my shell is gone, my energy will still be here growing, moving, pushing forward, learning, experiencing, and maybe "just maybe" it might engage a new shell "a new host".

I'm not a religious man, but I certainly believe there is more to me "and you" then what can be downloaded or backed up...

I guess the future will tell...

Human evolution

Human evolution at the crossroads
Genetics, cybernetics complicate forecast for species

Scientists are fond of running the evolutionary clock backward, using DNA analysis and the fossil record to figure out when our ancestors stood erect and split off from the rest of the primate evolutionary tree.

But the clock is running forward as well. So where are humans headed?

Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins says it's the question he's most often asked, and "a question that any prudent evolutionist will evade." But the question is being raised even more frequently as researchers study our past and contemplate our future.

Paleontologists say that anatomically modern humans may have at one time shared the Earth with as many as three other closely related types — Neanderthals, Homo erectus and the dwarf hominids whose remains were discovered last year in Indonesia.

Some think the rapid rise of genetic modification could be just such a circumstance. Others believe we could blend ourselves with machines in unprecedented ways — turning natural-born humans into an endangered species.

Whats up?

I got some new RAM today for my box :) A 512MB stick, so that is good news for me. I have also been jamming a lot w/ my friend Kevin and writing some new tunes. We are hoping to do some rough recordings of them soon, so if it should happen I'll post them.

Oh' I found out the Pixies are gonna be in the general area on June 16th. Woo Whooo! This is for sure a show stopper so I have to make it...

Hmmm... Anything else?

Oh yea, here's a hack of the Clearlooks Xfwm4 theme w/ a Square titlebar:

Antarctic Dinosaurs

Summary:
If you want to see some of the most wonderful and plentiful fossils in the world, you'll have to travel to Seymour Island in Antarctica. According to our resident palaeontologist, Paul Willis, Seymour Island is the best place in the world to actually see the KT Boundary, the day 65million years ago when the dinosaurs died.

Killer dinosaurs turned vegetarian

A new type of feathered dinosaur tells us more about how primitive, vicious carnivores evolved into peaceable vegetarians, US scientists say.

The birdlike dinosaur fossils unearthed in Utah may be a missing link that sheds light on how diet evolved, the researchers write in today's issue of the journal Nature.

The 125-million-year-old fossils show features of two-legged carnivorous dinosaurs called maniraptorans, from which birds are believed to have evolved.

The fossils also have leaf-shaped teeth, stubby legs and the expansive bellies of plant-eaters.

The new species is named Falcarius utahensis, meaning "sickle-maker from Utah".

"Falcarius is literally a missing link," says Assistant Professor Scott Sampson, chief curator at the Utah Museum of Natural History.

"Falcarius is kind of half-raptor and half-herbivore. This transition is triggered by a shift in diet."

He says it appeared at around the time that tasty, nutritious, flowering plants appeared on Earth.

"We know that the first dinosaur was a small-bodied, lightly built, fleet-footed predator," Sampson adds. All other dinosaurs evolved from it.

"However, as with many radiations of major groups of animals, it happened so quickly that we really don't have much in the way of fossil documentation."

Falcarius provides part of the picture, he says.

The adult Falcarius would have walked on two legs and was about 4 metres long and 1.4 metres tall.

It had strong forearms, sharp, curved, 10 centimetre claws and a long neck. And it was probably covered with shaggy, hair-like "proto-feathers".
