Reasons why it is better to have a body than be a virtual being [Dec. 20th, 2012|12:22 pm]

"My respiratory system hates me. I wish i could just be uploaded."

Now, now, let's not be hasty.

I would not be able to crochet, birdwatch, hike, smell the scent in the woods and in the estuaries, pet the cats, be with Christine, hug the neefs or my siblings or parents, taste tea....

The oft-unstated but present assumption is that the uploading isn't to some empty system with nothing else on it,but a full virtual world equivalent to the real one. (And not bandwidth-limited to whatever your perceptions are, so it feels REAL). Thus hugs, walks, and so on continue uninterrupted, except the bad lungs are gone.
