That's why I think that such speculation about uploading needs to look at the
techno bottlenecks and suggest workarounds. Why load a human personality into
some environment (assuming this is doable) in which it will likely go nuts.
We have to know how the brain works a lot better and derive analog
fuctionality that would act in the same way to support the personality as an
organic brain does-if not better.
