I can’t honestly remember what inspired the original thought but I was reading or writing something to do with Simulated Universes. Probably attempting a critique of Nick Bostrom’s essay on same.
A major implication of simulated universes is that we will be able to digitize ourselves and become “omortal”. (i.e optionally mortal – you go on living for as long as you still think its a good idea)
That seemed to me to be an idea worth exploring…
