CyBeRev means cybernetic beingness revival. The CyBeRev project is part of a multi-decade experiment to test the comparability of single person
human consciousness with a digital representation of the same person created by personality software that draws upon a database comprised
of the original person's digitized interactions, as assessed by expert psychological review. The purpose of the CyBeRev project is to preserve
sufficient digital information about a person so that, should the experiment validate the comparability of such consciousnesses, recovery of the
digitized personality will remain possible. The Terasem Movement believes that future technology will enable full recovery of functionality for
CyBeRev participants in this manner. Please see the Terasem Hypothesis below for further information.
The first step toward achieving that goal, and the purpose of this website, is for participants to store digital reflections of their mannerisms,
personality, recollections, feelings, beliefs, attitudes and values with as great a fidelity as is possible.
Participants can store digital reflections in a variety of formats, including:
- Interview Questions and Journal Entries
- Opinions, Likes and Dislikes
- Political, Moral and Religious Beliefs
- Comprehensive Personality Questions
- Photos, Videos and other media
This service is provided by invitation only based on individual application. Candidates must be over the age of 13.

Terms & Conditions
Please be aware that CyBeRev has been significantly updated to make it fully mobile compatible and to transition it to
an external hosting environment to improve responsiveness and availability. As such, errors may be encountered during your
use of the site. Please report them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for
prompt attention. Mindfiles are being archived frequently to local waterproof and fireproof storage and copies are kept at
disparate locations to help assure the long term survival of the data.
Terasem is continuing to develop new ways to store digital reflections
and will release these tools once they are fully tested. In addition, it is continually
enchancing the current tools and functionality of this site. Again, if you encounter issues with it, please let us know!
New Terasem Resident Scholar Program
The Terasem Resident Scholar is expected to do up to a year's worth of scholarly research regarding the Terasem Hypotheses, using the CyBeRev database as a resource, with the result published in a medium-to-high impact peer reviewed journal in the sciences or humanities.
Successful applicants to the Terasem Resident Scholar Program are expected to have a history of successful publications in medium-to-high impact peer reviewed journals in one or more field(s) relevant to the Terasem Hypotheses and CyBeRev. While not an absolute requirement, a typically successful Terasem Resident Scholar Program applicant would use their sabbatical year from a professorship for this opportunity.
Applications are by cover letter, CV and publication reprints to:

The Terasem Hypothesis
1. An adequately detailed and organized set of digital bemes of a person's mannerisms, personality, recollections, feelings, beliefs,
attitudes and values captures their consciousness in a state of biostasis, and when coupled with future software that elicits the consciousness
immanent in such digital reflections, will enable the person to be revived, feel alive, and enjoy a sense of conscious continuity with themselves.
2. A revived cyber-conscious person, with future technology, may be downloaded into a nanobiotechnological body, based either primarily on
nanotechnology or primarily on a body regenerated from a stem cell with its brain tissue cyberconscious-harmonized, and may thereafter continue their life with the
same sense of self as when they originally stored digital bemes of themselves for future revival.
The primary mission of the Terasem Movement, Inc. is to test the Terasem Hypotheses first by collecting digital bemes and later, as software technology advances, by attempting revitalization of such consciousness in computerized biostasis.
" AI's in the future will be able to recreate people from the information left behind
about them if suitable backups of their brain were not made (in which case it would
be straightforward). Neural nanobots would obtain all the available information
about them from other people's brains. The AI would also consider all of the person's
writings, pictures, movies, etc. also their genetic code. And it could then create
a person who would pass aTuring test for that person with their best friends as
the judges. For that reason it is worthwhile keeping your own files -- letters,
emails, photos,writings, etc. Is this recreated person the same person? It
is an interesting question, but we could also ask today are we the same person
as we were, say, a year ago. The recreated person by the AI is probably at least
as close as we are to ourselves after some time passage."
