Live forever?

Just clocked an article on the news about a start up in the US thats promising (100%) to store your brain by preserving it so that it can be digitally stored in the future. Problem is the process effectively kills you as it has to be done while you are still alive - bit like an assisted suicide.

This got me thinking though - if you could have this done and have your mind stored electronically - what would you do with yourself when you "came back" to life?

Assuming that robotic's sort of catches up a bit and you could end up a bit like C3PO - would you want to stay here? - if no one else in your family was about, i'd be tempted to go blasting off into space - nuclear/fission power plant, just go exploring and shit.

What sort of world do those going through it expect to wake up to or to even "wake up" at all...? according to Hawking we'll all be dead in 200 years anyway if we don't' get a bloody grip, so who's going to flick the "on" switch on your ass in the future.... ?

I'd think it would be a mind fuck and a half though - go to sleep, then wake up as "something" that's you but isn't you.. and what if you don't remember what you went through or why you did it... or if you didn't remember anything or anyone... damn.

Its the same as the old star trek debate, it you transport, is it really you at the other end or a copy and you are dead? How could you tell and does it matter? Even as an atheist I still kind of like the idea that there is a platonic "me" even though rationally its impossible to justify.

I think if I was in an utterly fucked state, you know, like end-stage cancer or something and there was zero percent of recovery, I'd try it. And to answer the actual question, see what state the world was actually in and if I knew any survivors (or relatives of, depending on time "asleep" etc)
