Mind upload or Whole Brain Emulation (WBE) is a hypothetical concept which leads to scanning the mental state and copying it to a computer. The respond of the simulation model of the brain should be an essentially same way as the original brain and be creating an artificial consciousness of an existing mind.
Many companies like Nectome came forward with this idea and claims to build a replica of consciousness.
Is this creating a Soul?
Mind transfer attains by either two methods which are the gradual replacement of Neurons and copy-and-transfer. In the formal method, brain upload acquires by scanning and mapping the salient features of the biological brain.
The simulated mind will be in a virtual reality or simulated yard.
Alternatively, the mind will be implanted into a robot or a biological body in real life. Some way, the whole process is like creating a soul for an immobile body.
Is this immortality or becoming God?
Some futurist and transhumanist movement thinks that this is a life extension technology. It is a good option to safeguard the identity of species.
It will act as a permanent backup and functional copies of human mind preserved for interstellar space travel or to survive a global disaster. But this whole idea remains hypothesis yet.
