[VIDEO] Altered Carbon (Netflix)

Gareth Williams (Elite) posted this on Saturday, 2nd December 2017, 13:47

Coming in 2018, new sci-fi series based on the book by Richard Morgan

ALTERED CARBON is set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks implanted in the spine, allowing humans to survive physical death by having their memories and consciousness "re-sleeved" into new bodies.

The pilot is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who is best known for helming the Hardhome and Battle of the Bastards episodes of Game of Thrones.

Spot the spelling mistake ;)

Ah but is it really you.
Many a Si fi theme does this......lets put you in a new body.

So if you transfer memory, mannerisms and some sort of consciousness to another body, does your actual 'soul' that is you, go with it. Do you wake up as you, or is it just a copy?

To others it is you, but the big question is it really death survival of the original you.

Not only has there been body swap type senarios, but also the dangers of future technologies, that could mess up your life, for example there is a si-fi book (cannot remeber its name) that looked into matter transfer (aka: Star trek transporter), and wonders if the original you is transfered, or just a copy of you, and the real you dies, or worse, where you re-materalised but on a different phase frequency, where you are ghost like, and cannot find real food to eat, and end up with canabalism of the next lot of passengers coming through the transporter.

No wonder I fear new technologies reading this sort of stuff
