What makes us “human”? Our cells? Our brains? Our souls?

I recently read an article where scientists put a worm’s mind (well, it’s nervous system) into the body of  robot. (You can read the article HERE.)

So my Theoretical Thursday is this:

If you could have your mind transported into the body of a robot (and you MUST live in it for at least 50 years), would you do it? [This can be done at any point in your life, from now until the moment before you die.] The robot body would have to be human-shaped, but cosmetic characteristics can be chosen by you.

Can’t wait to hear what you choose!

    and so it begins. for me – absolutely not. i am content w/ being finite and completely human. when my job here is finished, it will be time for me to leave, at least in body. but, artificially extending my physical life? no way, jose!
