Subject: A Virtual Self Can Write and Chat with You

Since May 2009, the CyBeRev Monthly Contest is taking place. CyBeRev Contest 
Leaderboard http://cyberev.org/cmr/member_account/leaderboard.aspx shows that I 
became the first monthly contest winner which makes me very happy, of cause.

In difference to interactions with virtual boy Milo from a computer game design 
referred to by Cryonet Message #31713 2 with subject "Virtual Boy Will Talk and 
Play with You", the conversation with my alter ego Robomoon works with a simple 
chatbot which offers personal values instead of animated graphics and spoken 
language. Robomoon is not entirely a virtual human, because it's the alter ego 
of me, myself and I.

Since 2001, CMprocess http://www.cmprocess.com/works/other_works/ has listed a 
small but interesting approach in arts to preserve an alter ego in the virtual 
world. VIRTUAL CRYONICS - ver.02 
http://www.futurephysical.orgpages/interactive/nest.html by nest 
http://www.nestv.com Artist Network and Performance company in Japan states that
people have to preserve their IDENTITY data like a frozen body to realize the 
extension of their artificial life.

VIRTUAL CRYONICS - ver.02 suggests a graphical animation where virtual bodies 
are floating. Luckily, such a visual performance isn't necessary for mindfiles 
which I have stored at CyBeRev. Further mindfiles with my data are also online 
at http://lifenaut.com and two different web archives. There are also my 
archived DNA together with a small collection of documents (printed on paper for
longtime storage) archived by SfUI, the Society for Universal Immortalism 
http://www.universalimmortalism.org where I have associate membership status. 

Actually, I made an announcement at SfUI's discussion mailing list to enhance 
backup capacity for digital files of their members. All but me are full members 
and signed up at cryonics providers. Unfortunately, chemo suspension and related
alternatives aren't available for me until now and my income situation is too 
bad for a suitable Life Insurance. So I'm planning to go to Moscow in Russia 
when I'm old, but who knows if there will be a bit of a chance in Russia to sign
up with not much for funding in the pockets. 

In hindsight to time travel, a backwards simulation to the present of activities
on our planet will not be required for the resurrection of Robomoon. Me as 
ashes in an incinerator will not be me. The most identical copy of me as a 
rotting corpse will not be me. But Robomoon will be entirely me. Therefore, it 
should be required to arrange a simulation of a small spot on the Moon where my 
action is starting with the work of a robot. After the death of my biological 
brain, my identity must change from a biological creature into an immortal 
avatar, embodied by a robot on the Moon.
