All I was saying was that procreating is a poor substitute for actually living into the future.

Until major breakthroughs happen in both biology and computer technology, we may be stuck. Further more, the notion of biology to silicon transcendence is predicated on understanding what exactly consciousness is; and is it transferable?

Some have postulated that consciousness is nothing more than an illusion. Though I still hold that in the end, we all leave this world as we came into it from birth; kicking and screaming.

Not saying you're wrong, but damn, that's a nihilistic way of putting it!

With regards to faulting programming: That's the song and dance of humanity. Get over it. You won't have a sole arbiter of knowledge, because both government and other institution will always claim to be that. It's how wars get started and oppression / tyranny set root. All that you can do as a parent is teach your children as much correct knowledge that you know to be true. But most importantly, teach him/her of the methods by being self-sufficient to learn on their own and question everything.

And how do you transfer your mind, which is made up of an individual pattern of pathways of neurons and synapse unique to the individual? You can't transfer the brain because it too ages. The DNA overtime suffers replication transcription errors. You might the able to extend the telomeres or re-program the DNA using the CRISPR method...maybe.

I think this is it. The only way to "extend your life" is via procreation. Whatever knowledge you transfer to your child[ren] will be your long lasting legacy left behind.

1. Most people don't know how to do what you suggest. But yes, simply writing them all down with pin and paper is trivial. The problem with BYOD is that when you collect business contacts on business time, ostensibly is their intellectual property and not yours. Well, at least from the companies perspective and a tenuous argument at that. None the less they will go to great lengths to protect it if given the proper tools. Which brings me to the next item.

2. Microsoft Exchange. I know that it's an all or nothing deal with both iPhone and Android.

Also it keeps salesman from walking away with a copy of e-mail and contacts when they're no longer employed. While it's SOP IT policy to perform a remote wipe of the cell phone, it's still comes down to the nasty discussion of "hey assholes, you just erased all the photos of my family and sons birthday party (personal phone)". Yup, you can't just can't remote wipe the e-mail account; it's all or nothing!

You must be oblivious to the amount of debt and inflation around you. That, and el presidente is about to enable millions of illegal immigrants the ability to work on the cheap and vote themselves "free" shit. Oh, and that throws the entire black community under the bus whom are already competing for jobs of the same ability. Meanwhile, they send over a net 20+ billion in wealth (per year) from the US compounding the hemorrhaging effect on the economy.

What can't go on forever won't go on forever.
