It was winter break and I had flown back from Colorado for a few weeks. There was a short winter session, but I had been sick with mononucleosis for almost all of my first semester of college and was completely burnt out on school. The winter session wasn’t required, so I decided to spend the whole break at home in California. On the morning on which I flew back, there was a heavy blizzard and several feet of snow were dumped around Colorado Springs. The airport was packed and all the flights delayed. I was splitting a taxi with another Bay Area local whom I’d met during my short stint on the college swim team. The snow was so deep that the taxi was late but with the severe delays at the airport, we made perfect time to catch our flight back to San Francisco.
Let's say that, in the future, one is able to upload you brain into some sort of backup similar to the way in which one stores a computer's information on a backup hard drive. The “back-up” copy of your brain should be the same as the intended “original” copy, otherwise, what would be the point of having this “back-up” brain? What if the contents of your brain, stored on this backup hard drive, was downloaded into two bodies simultaneously? More specifically, what if this backup information was downloaded into both a body living in Hawaii and the one intended for hard labor on Mars? The answer to this question is dependent on the nature of the technology used to perform this upload. If the upload is somehow affected by the simultaneity of the upload, there could be damage done to the software as it is uploaded, depending on how the data is transmitted. Imagine two people trying to stream Netflix on their devices using the same WIFI network. There may be moments where the show gets paused on one or both computers because streaming uses so much data and in the case where one is uploading a database contenting someone’s thoughts, it could cause small failures, or perhaps even a completely failed download.
Aesthetic visions of science are not always accurate.
Publications about new scientific discoveries can lead to implementation of new strategies by governments. Words are as important in science as they are in any other field, and verbal conclusions on scientific topics can lead to disruptions in their future development. Framing certain eras in the history of technology in a manner where certain aspects are represented by gender does not necessarily mean that those situations occurred in that exact manner, but is only a manner of studying the history of science.
The origins of various sciences are dependent on existence of other fields of science. A single experiment can lead to the creation of a whole new field, which is true in the case of very important discoveries. Although there are perceived and documented pressures on some groups of individuals, those situations frequently lead to important discoveries being made by unexpected individuals, like Galileo, who worked on the fringes of science.
