Thanks, have his books on my shelves (read them too!), but my question
was phrased poorly..."Is anyone familiar with somewhere I could physically
transport myself to in order to *experience* (undoubtedly only one of many
theoretical ideas of "what" the uploaded lifestyle would feel like) a type
of "upload" consciousness?" I am referring to "shedding the body" (hence
involving sensory deprivation to diminish sensory input), and using
thought (?) to manipulate a "created" environment.
Hope this expresses my question.
