There was a very interesting story/interview on NPR


...and since I only listen when I am driving the details are always fuzzy but they were talking about Elon's Neuralink company that is to download human memory, ultimately download human consciousness and in essence create immortality. The idea is this would represent the next step in human evolution, posthuman, and in fact if we are to travel the stars seems the most durable type of human consciousness to do it. There was a woman scholar and I got the impression she was a religious and tech scholar who spoke to the Bible and the end times being that the dead will be reborn and the living will never die. I'm not clear on the biblical reference so that may be twisted but that is how I remember it. Anyway she was talking about this electronic human consciousness and evolution as the possible outcome of this AI advancement. I thought it was interesting anyway....
