      Not right now. And maybe never. If you think that you are nothing but your memories, emotions, speech patterns etc., we could probably load that data onto a computer in the distant future. But would that be you? Isn’t your body an important part of who you are, and the perspective from which you see the world? Suppose we could connect your brain to a computer, would there now be two of you? Which one would be the REAL you?
