HI for Ivan Bozzonetti:

Your claims about timing in terms of what we can do with a copy of
a brain (your brain or mine) are simply so far out of line that
I do not wish to discuss them in public. If you wish to discuss
this matter in further detail, I'm quite happy to do so. My
email address is:

I suggest that you read up on neuroscience, to start, but won't
refuse to discuss this matter if you choose not to do that. As
for your ideas, I'm not so much rejecting them as saying that
they raise far more complexities than you seem to think. AS
I said in my original message, I do think that SOMEDAY we
might be stored as records in a "computer", but just what those
records would be, and the variety of the computer, and the
technology used to do this, AND recreate the brain from storage,
remain farther away than any one alive now can expect to reach.

		Best wishes and long long life for all,

			Thomas Donaldson
