Comment on Fluid Cyberspace -> Commitments to Multiple Essentialities

@ashalynd: that's where mind uploading and experience sharing come in. We can choose both paths as many times as we're capable of turning on another "brain," but there will be left overs from a metaphysical standpoint. The things you can't get from others' minds or aren't capable of exploring yourself from time or feasibility constraints are going to remain unknown unless we develop some sort of infinite computer.

Another solution: If we find out that our universe can be computed faster than the current rate it's running at, then it may be possible to run multiple scenarios from the past or eventually compute further into the future than we're presently aware, that is if you could gather the necessary information (which would be the monstrous task of finding all the information in the universe at a given point in time or if turns out that our universe is reversible, then you can just infer the previous states) and if you had the time to wait for answers. here

it sounds like the longing for breadth and depth is just the nature of the beast.
