Where I Live
San Francisco Bay area
Mindclone asks the question, What if everything in your head was uploaded to a computer. Would you and your digital twin get along? What if your Mindclone has feelings for your hot new love-interest? Can a mind without a body even have feelings? What would "life" be like for such an entity? Would unlimited access to the internet, virtually infinite memory capacity and speed-of-light cognition be sufficient compensation for all the things it can no longer experience? Things like pizza and beer. Swimming in a mountain lake. The smell of the air after a rain. The warm hug (and more) of another human being. It's a serio-comic novel of ideas, exploring the science and technology, the social impact, and what it means to be human, whether or not you have a body. It also features an unusual love triangle, adventure, humor, human and digital foibles, and as an extra added bonus, the defeat of death itself.
