I suspect that uploading"consciousness" probably is equivalent to copying the
picture on your TV. You might be able to copy the hardware/software that
produces the image, not the actual image.
What about a VCR doesn't that copy the picture? No it just makes an image of
that picture. How about DVD ? Isn't every DVD disk like every other one with
the same title ? Yes, but they are still just an image of the original event
Rather than trying to copy "consciousness" into some other medium maybe the way to true longevity of " consciousness" is to increase the amount of an individual's information processing that resides out of body until it reaches a point at which the death of the biologic component is of no significant importance to that individual. What is the significance of the loss of 1/1000000 of an individual's " consciousness"? Dennis Roberts
