A great video from the Thunderbolts Project that fits perfectly into the transhumanist / futurist community. It is a fantastic interview with Dr. Gary Schwartz concerning consciousness and the brain.
If you put some thought into what the good Dr. is saying, it does make sense. The brain may only be a middleman or at worst, just a receiver. In that case, the entire concept of life expansion by moving the mind to a computer my be a fools errand. I am not necessarily saying that the Dr. is right but the concepts he is talking about is very interesting.
Overall, this is a great job by the folks at the Thunderbolts Project.
