Comment on Our Algorithmic Reality

Infinitas Wed, Mar 17, 2010
I was having a conversation with my roommate the other day about the future of philosophy and virtual reality. When computer technology reaches the point when you can be in a virtual world and instantaneously have or do anything you can imagine, and you can upload your memory to the virtual world, what will be the consequences? After biological death, you could chose to live in a virtual world with infinite amounts of programable space, creating your own universe, existing without the need to satisfy our "physical responsibilities," becoming that which is able to create without bounds...a God.

People will kill themselves to escape and live in such a "world."
