Selling digital salvation

Man has been struggling with death since the beginning of consciousness, and while we aren’t any closer to answering the big question, we are getting closer to a solution.

There will come a time when super computers (or the average wrist watch) will be able to trace and store the patterns of thought. While some believe that there is something unquantifiable about the mind, some believe that this will be the birth of digital consciousnesses.

What would happen if someone actually figured this out? I’ll tell you what – that person would become richer than Bill Gates. To be able to sell eternal consciousnesses would be a service beyond imagination. While it might not be the answer, it would certainly be an attractive solution.

Well, it beats pushin’ up daisies.
