Forget that, Julian. When one has been in love, one realizes that there is *definitely* a point to human emotions, the very most important point there is. I do hope these clever chaps can figure out a way to give my uploaded self that particular flood of endorphines, or some reasonable substitute. This may be a difficult task indeed, but I would turn your argument around and say: without most human emotions, uploading would be pointless. spike
