    Entropia Universe wants you to be able to upload your consciousness into its MMO world

    Swedish developer MindArk, creators of the long-running MMO Entropia Universe, have begun working with AI researchers from several universities on a process for uploading human consciousness to their game. MindArk are working with researchers from ...

    Well done, EU on expanding science projects.

    But, don't forget that the consciousness of EU only exist because of EU players are contributing.

    EU = RCE.
    Please don't forget and continue to make RCE great and more exciting again.

    to make RCE great

    We would need to build a wall separating Boreas from the rest of Eudoria

    and we will make them pay for it

    Well, that's why I said, the management team cannot be run by simple minded people. They need to work hard and stay professional all-time.

    Good reputation is important. Reputation will make you paid for everything

    what's wrong with that article?
    you don't have to walk their way
    you don't have to watch the show
    you don't have to play their game
    and you don't have to die to leave entropia

    OK, that's gonna be a wall of text... Sry.

    As of now, there's no scientific concept of what the consciousness is. We have a fuzzy idea about combinations of neurons firing in large networks... and then consciousness as some sort of emergent phenomenon on top of this electro-chemical process... but so far nobody has managed to replicate the phenomenon. We have more than enough computational power to do that but we don't have a slightest idea how. Therefore we can't even estimate how far or how close we are to cracking this riddle. Maybe somebody will stumble upon it tomorrow, or maybe we will never achieve this.

    We just don't know.

    To make things even worse, what we do know is the fact that large part of the information processing in the human brain happens on the unconscious level, both inside and outside the brain.

    Outside brain!? Yep, you read it right. There's lot's of extremely important functions, for example intuition/creativity that rely largely on your moods/emotions, which in turn are largely regulated by biochemical substances produced by the glands located in different places all over our physical body. For example, successful completion of an important task is a bit of information that is stored chemically. It is very old system, and has been vitally important in the evolution for our distant forefathers in the primitive animal kingdom. There's a record of positions in the hierarchy of the "tribe". To avoid unnecessary fights every member of this collective/tribe stores it's position in the hierarchy. The memory storage unit for this position is chemical, it's stored in the form of pheromonal balance.

    We don't know how exactly it would change the behavior of the human beings (or if the consciousness would even function) if we cut off all the hormonal regulation systems in the body and walk away with only the "purer brain".
    We do know that such a brain would challenge another member of the collective to the fight to determine it's position on the hierarchy every time it meets them. It has no previous record about the relative position with that specimen, so it assumes it's their first encounter and the positions are yet to be determined... and it keeps doing that every time, until it dies or is damaged beyond it's capability to fight.

    The systems regulating behavior related to reproduction is even more ancient, thus also heavily reliant on pheromones. The glands responsible for the whole system are all located outside our brain. We don't know enough about the science of this, but it's pretty safe to assume that a human being that is 100% cut off from the body will have no feeling of burning love. He/she might have an intellectual concept of "sympathy", but can it understand what "Romeo and Julia" is all about? Forget about it.

    So this upload thing, you know what's the problem with it? Two words. Childish. Stupid.

    As a side note: Christianity has always believed to resurrect a person you have to physically reconstruct the whole body. Why's that, one would wonder? Wouldn't it be easier to imagine just a some kind of ethereal spirit?
    I mean if it's all just made up stories, why choose the most unlikely option, ghost stories have been known and more or less widely accepted for thousands of years. In a sense, the consciousness transfer is just a modern, upgraded version of the traditional ghost story.

    Science, weirdly enough, seems to discard the ghost stories and prefer the Christianity's version.

    I especially laugh at this article, a good part of the% of the community has more or less 10 years of seniority. seeing that MA wants us to transfer our money on their account why not their data our money after our death and your "conscience" so that the money remains on the account as it is immortal

    They'll have to at least fix the "falling through the ground" bug first. I do not want my consciousness to experience that
