“Everyone’s mind will be permanently linked to the wireless Internet, and through the Internet to everyone else’s mind. This will trigger very radical changes. In particular, telepathic groups able to instantly share and elaborate thoughts will produce an enormous acceleration in the development and deployment of new ideas, and cause the emergence of “group minds.” And once neural communication is sufficiently deep, accurate and fast, it will be possible to transfer the informational content of a person’s brain, with memories, thoughts and feelings, to a higher performance storage and process- ing device. This “mind uploading” technology may eventually provide practical immortality.”- space physicist Giulio Prisco
