Since I just posted not too long ago on the subject of inspiration I find this a bit fitting. Just had to share this because it is CRAZY! This type of inspiration can work both ways. I could EASILY write a story based off this one article. In fact, it may be more difficult to avoid writing a story about that than it would be to write one.
Secondly, the coolness factor here is that someone is probably taking inspiration from novelists and trying to turn it into an actual reality. Honestly, stuff like this really, really, scares me even though it is kind of cool. Thoughts? Am I the only one that things this is a scary place for science to trod? Any of you going to use this article as a source for novel and writing inspiration?
Here is a synopsis in case you don’t feel like visiting the link:
There is a guy being endorsed by the Dalai Lama as well as the Russian Ministry of Education and Science to work on creating a way to perpetuate our consciousness indefinitely. We’re not talking bodily immortality, but essentially creating vessels and using technology to harness and hold our consciousness forever.
Creepy? Cool? Amazing? All of the above? Sounds like it came right out of a sci-fi novel.
