Have you read _Mind Is A Myth_, by U. G. Krishnamurti?

Yes, I see what you mean. As for myself, forbearing satisfaction keeps me
awake and dispels dreams. You've helped to change my opinion of uploading

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, and ego.

     but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.

We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
