The reason I brought up gender differences in cognitive style rather than bodily morphology is because it would not be the bodies of people which would be uploaded, but their minds. If gender differences in cognitive style are pronounced enough to be measurable over a large population to a statistically significant degree, it would seem to introduce a further element of complexity into the uploading project. Multiple connectionist schema within the cybernetic upload site might be required to accommodate the possibly distinct neural network patterns underlying these cognitively stylistic differences (verbal/aural vs. visual/spatial being the most documented and notable). Comment ca vu?
