With the power of a controllable superintelligent AI, it may even be possible to create very accurate instances of your past self (and you could take action today or in the near future to make this easier by using lifelogging tools such as these glasses).

Quick mod notes:

1. I've just added the "Life Extension" tag, which often fits Mati's posts better than 'cryonics'.

2. I'm leaving this question (and other questions by Mati) on personal blog, not because it doesn't meet our frontpage guidelines, but because Mati posts a fairly high volume of short questions. This is a bit of a judgment call, and LW team members may later make different decisions. (I don't think Mati should change behavior, I think it's good to post lots of questions, but I think it's probably good for the frontpage to not be filled with lots of short questions. This seems like a good use of the personal/frontpage distinction)

  1. Awesome, thank you! I don't want to push my luck, but I would love a "lifelogging" tag as well. The lack of those two tags is the reason I asked this question ^_^

  2. Thanks for the clarifications. I was hesitant about my volume of content, so it's good to know. I think I agree with your thinking!:)

the lack of a "modal immortality" tag is also why I asked What information on (or relevant to) modal immortality do you recommend?
