If you are around and unwanted why would you stay? Or is it ignorance and desperation that keeps you around? I'd think the other would hurt more but shows what I know.
Probably.Why would the other be worse?
Because out renders your impact null. It means you've not only wasted your time but theirs and ultimately everyone who ever knew of you in that situation.
But isn't it linked to being unwanted?Also, you won't care about not being missed because you'd be gone at that point.
Well both are linked, as you said, two sides of the coin. But being unwanted doesn't necessarily mean lacking impact.However being forgotten definitely means that.And to think that our time is wasted is perhaps most perturbing in my opinion.
"being unwanted doesn't necessarily mean lacking impact"True.Why does it matter tho? Even if you are remembered, eventually anyone who remembered you will be gone. Unless humans live indefinitely, eventually any contributions or impact you made will also be forgotten.
Many men who were unwanted still live on in our lore. Many outcasts and individuals who were not popular in their day now hold sway over our culture. Never mistake the power of being unliked because talk is talk, good or bad, and impact is impact, positive or negative.A legacy is a legacy.
But all impact is temporary when considering the big picture. Most people are forgotten soon after and those who become part of history or lore will also be forgotten at some point.Assuming this is it, once you die you dont exist and can't care about whether or not you had an impact or if/how people remember you.
Backwards. All impact is long-term. The names, places, and assorted facts of the person become myth. It's why, say, Einstein is a legend, but the man himself as a person was rather sleazy. We forget that. We remember Relativity. Who remembers the man who created the modern refrigerator's name? No one. Who doesn't use a refrigerator though? Some things really are forever.
Forever?You think we will never go extinct?
Humans will likely not go extinct. They may however go and get themselves all defeated by their next of kin evolutions and then become cyborgs. We beat the extinction thing.
That's a pretty bold statement that we will never go go extinct. 😕Also how feasible is the concept of uploading a person's conciousness to a computer?
Well we keep winning through tech outsmarting the universe so it'd take a major threat and sudden reality. Like the sun just going Nova randomly. No idea. It's probably not impossible but my knowledge there is weak at best.
What about famine, disease or nuclear war?I don't understand how it would work. You wouldn't be continuing or transfering consciousness on the machine, you would just be creating a copy of what was on your brain and essentially replaced by the copy.
