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 may be assessed by expert psychological review.

The Present

The CyBeRev site was recently redesigned to make it more inviting and mobile compatible. Mindfiles are archived frequently to local waterproof and fireproof storage with copies kept at secure offsite locations to ensure long term survival of your data. Comments and suggestions regarding CyBeRev are always welcome, please send to: mail@terasemcentral.org.

The Future

In its progression towards digitizing ones consciousness (see the Terasem Hypotheses), Terasem continues to develop new ways to store and enhance digital reflections and will release new tools as they are fully tested.

Interested volunteers are encouraged to contact Terasem at mail@terasemcentral.org.

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 a Turing 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. — Ray Kurzweil
