First off, the 'Singularity' is the point where our technology exceeds our humanity. Perfect self-replicating, self-improving AI, for example. Presumably allowing us to 'download' ourselves onto solid-state drives, become immortal to a point, etc.
Assuming that(the download)is at all possible, do you think those who did it would only be a silhouette of their former selves? Or, granting that consciousness probably isn't containable by data, what might happen if someone tried?
