If there was the option to download your consciousness onto a computer and potentially live forever, would you take it?

Instantly, zero hesitation. As with all file transfers, it wouldn’t be a move (copy then delete), it would be a simple copy. I'd make as many of those copies as I could afford the storage for, and would put some of them to work inventing robot bodies for all of us. The rest working on the other parts of the project, funding, better networking, etc.

No, I would prefer to keep what I think in my head because putting it out there for anyone to see wouldn't be a good thing.

But there isn’t, and the sci fi staple that computing power=consciousness has nothing to back it up.

That’s why the question starts with “if”
