Can't be reanimated as a biological human. The reentry process will
require a neuro patients to add on a prosthetic body or cloned body (or
whatever will come on line technologically at that time). So, it would
have to be a post-biological transhuman. As for whole body patients, they
too will need some non-biological augmentations and therefore will not be a
biological human.

But, to answer your question, I want a post-biological transport vehicle
that changes appearance and form, and I also want aspects of my self to be
available for uploading, and I want to be superintelligent. I also would
like to have sub-personalities available and a smart backup system.

My bracelet is on my kitchen table. I would really like to have an implant
on my wrist that flashes neon colors and emits a loud alarm if I need to
get immediate medical care and suspension. A problem with the bracelet or
necklace is that there are some personnel in emergency rooms that don't
look at the bracelets/necklaces while treating a patient.

Waiting for you to design it Eliezer.
