Speciesism, and Uploading the Mind

...modification and enhancement of the human body
beyond species typical boundaries. The appearance of
cyborgs, artificial intelligence, sentient non-human
life forms, new species (through synthetic biology),
and uploading of the mind are a few of the anticipated

"Uploading is the (so far hypothetical) process of
transferring the mental structure and consciousness of
a person to an external carrier, like a computer. This
would make it possible to completely avoid biological
deterioration (aging, damage), allow the creation of
backup copies of the mind, very profound modifications
and postbiological existence."
