Linux_Yes: as long as the computer is running Linux, no problem.  i'd be afraid to be copied to a windows machine.  too many conflicting apps, infections, fragmented files, ads, pop ups, slow downs over time, registration/licensing issues, overcharges, etc, etc.


thankfully, Linux has never done any of this to my PC.  so i would be comfortable with my mind in it too.



oh, and the Linux kernel doen'st give me blue screens of death.   at the worst, i might have to close down and restart a frozen application. but the OS keeps on running.  helpful if you have your mind in ram.

Egoy3k: Firstly the 'alternate universe' bet was made over 30 years ago, the article you linked was basically a resolution of that bet (Hawking lost) that was discovered by Hawking and is sort of a big deal, in fact it's a huge deal.  So without even getting into the whole alternate universe part of your comment you have shown a complete lack of reading comprehension.


Guess how I know you're not a physicist.  It wasn't "discovered", it was pulled out of his ass and there's nothing to back it up.

Egoy3k: Secondly your post used the words, "there's zero proof of any universe existing aside from this one" which is what illustrates your ignorance as to what the word universe actually means.  If we can observe something then it is part of our universe, there can be and will never be 'proof' of another universe and nobody ever in the entire history of physics has ever believed that there would be.  It's flat out impossible.  The lack of proof of alternate universes has never deterred scientists from theorizing about them because there will never be proof.


That is entirely bullshiat.  Guess how I know you know nothing about M-theory.

Egoy3k: In short if any physicist was discouraged by the lack of proof of alternate universes they wouldn't be much of a physicist because they would lack a very basic understanding about their field of study.


Yeah, that's why nearly every physicist at the announcement was tremendously disappointed.  Because they all know less than you.
