Putting me as a robot.

    Okay, to make this quick, I have some experience making robots, but no cash. This project will require an engineer and biologist.

    To make it short, I got health problems, and depression. My back always aches. And there are some things about my body I do not like and make me dissassociate.

    I think I am transsexual, because I hate being male and if I was a robot, I would be a female robot. But there is also the "cool" factor of being different from everyone else, as a robot I would be famous and finally people on talk shows would listen to my reasonable views.


    So in short, I experience physical pain at my aching body. I want a surgery where my brain and spine is removed from my body and put into a robot body. My robot body will provide the exact same sensations as a human body, since it is connected to my spine. I will even have taste sensors to still enjoy food. When someone touches me I will feel like a real human being since all of the wires will be inserted into my spine. I will also have a boost in IQ sense I can have calculators connected to my brain. I can also put USB chords into my brain to interface with the internet.

    This is real and I want it to happen. What is the estimated amount of years before this can be done for me? My body is in a lot of pain and I want to know how long I have to hold on.



    I have some transhuman friends, and transsexual friends. I am cool with my transsexual friends but some of my transhuman friends frighten me. This is because, my transhuman friends think it is cool to trap us inside of a giant simulation. They hate their human bodies and desperately want to trap themselves inside a computer. Thus my robot idea shall placate them, they shall still be human, but in robot bodies, so they are still connected to the real world and not lost souls forever trapped inside the virtual realms. Thus I think my robot idea is important to placate the transhumans, otherwise they may start trapping people inside of virtual reality, instead of realspace. My robot idea aims to be natural and still keep human beings within the real world.

    I saw that movie. Sort of farfetched.

    Building a robot with the same sensory abilities as a biological organisms would seem an almost impossible task.
    a) you would have to have millions of sensory feelers to experience touch.
    b) you would not need food as your body runs on electricity.

    All this means that the subconscious interoceptive control mechanisms of the brain become useless.
    Mixing biological with non-biological assets presents an inherent problem which may be very difficult to overcome.
    This may explain further:

    80-100 - but the sensory input and fine muscle control will be limited.
    Unless the global economy or the WWW break down, or massive storms take down too much infrastructure or there is a big war or pandemic. Any of those cataclysmic events can break the flow of technological advancement.

    Also, assume that the first recipients of a ground-breaking technology will be vetted to be the most healthy and suitable and low-risk for complications.
    Enough can go wrong with things like this that they would pick the one in a million people who are most likely to have it take without complications.
    Only after it's been proven in-the-field for many years will they start casting a wider net for higher-risk recipients.
