Who drives you?

Silicon Valley proposes to drive our cars for us. I guess that's okay.

Silicon Valley theorizes about putting our minds in software containers and storing them in computer memory, to be woken up when there's something for us to do, or think about, or perhaps see.

But what would there be to see or do or think about in a world where everyone else is in a computer's memory. Have you seen many beautiful megabytes recently? Honey come look at the glorious pixel I just found. Of course you'll only be able to "see" it from the other side of the glass, looking out.

Maybe we'll be able to hear each others' thoughts?

There's a watch coming. But it will be a short-lived product, because soon we won't have wrists to put them on.

So in a world where we're woken up to see or think, or do something, but there's nothing to see or do, or think about, I guess there won't be any reason to wake up.

When it's all said and done, we might just end our species because we ran out of things to think about or do or see. Something to think about. Or do something about.

PS: I think this whole upload-your-brain thing is a trick. Once they get you up there, they'll just turn the computer off and that's that.
