No no no!! Again:
*totally missing the point*. Not caring or wanting to know who you will be
and trusting AI's to make you that way seems dopey. This is not an answer,
it's a cop out. Only someone who is so young they feel immortal , or someone
who doesnt care much for life as it exists now. I asked for those who have a
vision &*do* expect to survive as themselves, what the experience will be
like, so, unlike E here, the architects of that reality (transhumanists
pushing the edge) may have some hand in it...
