Something to think about.

As continuous progress is made within both information technology and neuroscience the questions about pinning down and reproducing brain functionality becomes more of a question of when rather than if. If you can create a self aware software application it will be the beginning of the virtualisation of the human race.

Worlds as real as our own universe simulated in self repairing, self replicating computer systems of the smallest scales feeding off the least amount of energy to be as efficient as it can.

There’s a whole lot of things to consider being the Gods of our own world/worlds but here are a few to try and see peoples opinion of this.

1.) Will there be any requirement to interact with anything in the real world?

2.) How will we evolve what we perceive as reality towards the reality we want?

3.) Having everything and knowing everything, will we become just as cold and calculating as the machines we run off?
