Default Re: What is the ultimate vision for digital consciousness?

Thank you Fred for commenting.

One takeaway I'm getting is the limitations of the concepts.

Initially there was so much exuberance regarding nanotechnology, AI, and its evolution. Then there was a lot of consideration of its potential dystopia. And more recently, I've been aware of pushback against the inevitability of some of the exaggerated, fundamental changes that are implied.

It was interesting reviewing this tone in a recent thread here as well.

As you hinted though, I'm still interested in what the advocates of approaching a digital and collective mental integration hope to achieve. How do they envision the dynamics of the state they end up with?
