The organism isn't static either and would be engineered to keep apace with
the brain. Besides, genetic engineered or 'wet' uploads will likely come
before 'dry' nano uploads and I want in ASAP. With a static brain you're
left with nothing more than a duplicate or digital clone of you. I don't
want a clone living for me! I want to be in the virtual world! I'm willing
to bet most common people would agree that gradual uploads are the way to
go. Thats just my opinion.
