Well, no. Especially in view of the current state of our technology, as
Thomas reminds us. But the universe will not be able to sustain carbon based
life forever, and our flesh and blood bodies have very inconvenient
limitations. Uploading to something better and more enduring is really the
only way we can obtain true immortality.
