Changes to your personality profile are now being tracked. This means that you will now be able to capture your personality and opinions as they change simply by revisiting the personality questions from time to time.

About the project

CyBeRev means cybernetic beingness revival. The CyBeRev project is part of a multi-decade experiment to test the comparability of single person actual 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 people in this manner. (Read more)

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:

  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Text documents
  • Audio recordings
  • Favorites
  • Personality tests

Participants can then choose to share some or all of their information with others through the Visit Reflections feature of the project.

Availability

The service is provided by invitation only based on sponsorship by an active Terasem participant.  Candidates must be over the age of 13.  Send an inquiry to mail@terasemcentral.org for additional information.

Future

Terasem Movement is continuing to develop new ways to store digital reflections and will release these tools once they are fully tested. In addition, TMI is continually enchancing the current tools and functionality of the site.

Hypotheses

Please read the Terasem Hypotheses and Mission statement

 

" 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."
