The brain may multitask but the mind does not imnsho.

I’ve been wondering about life extension technology

I’ve been wondering for some time how we could extend our life in the near future. There are some exciting possibilities such as 3D printing organs for transplant but the brain will eventually decay and die. So what to do about this? If we were even able to copy all the network of connections our brain has onto a computer it will still not be us but a mere shadow of ourselves. This is one of the biggest problems we face to long-term living. Here are some other websites that have cool stuff on the brain.
