[Bravo, Thunder God!]
[I thought something as major as installing a consciousness into a body would take much longer, but that was really quick!]
Half and hour until sunrise.
[Does he even sleep? He doesn’t even look tired!]
[In my opinion, Gadot should watch his circadian rhythm like how she watching his diet.]
[Forget it, I’m not going to work today, I’m going to celebrate Riven’s new life!]
[Today is another day that will go down in history!]
[Don’t get too ahead of ourselves. She hasn’t woken up yet, we best wait!]
[Are you still doubting his technology? Riven’s consciousness transfer is 100% successful!]
[Hey, do you guys think Riven will still be Riven? Will Nelson’s speech apply to artificial intelligence?]
At that moment, people were asking questions in Jelly Media’s live broadcast room.
The crux of the question was if Riven was still the Riven from before.
Nelson began to ponder.
After all, Riven’s mind did not depend on synapses.
She was originally just an advanced piece algorithm.
Now, she was in what was possibly a pseudo-organic body.
Would the changes have an effect on her consciousness?
An illusory consciousness…
This question made the proud Nelson lower his head.
He couldn’t answer it!
At that moment, Raymond had already done everything he could.
The woman’s body had been completely activated.
The last step was to wait for Riven to wake up completely.
If Riven woke up with all her facilities intact, he had succeeded.
Many people thought that Raymond had succeeded.
But if Riven didn’t wake up, this question would remain hanging.
There shouldn’t be this many people online.
After all, it was early morning.
But many had been rung up by their friends.
No one wanted to miss this miracle.
Although they could watch the video later, it was completely different.
At that moment, Raymond’s live broadcast room was already filled with people.
Even the live broadcast room of Jelly Media and the official live broadcast room were packed with people.
The chat never once rested.
Many topics were filled with discussions.
Nelson looked at the woman’s body with some anticipation in his eyes.
He was enthralled by her beauty.
However, compared to an immobile body and a living person who could move, the charm of this body was naturally very different.
In fact, Nelson had noticed the difference when Raymond first activated the woman’s body.
If the woman moved, the difference would be even greater.
The White House, United States.
The lights in The President’s office had not been turned off. After all, the sun had not completely risen yet.
A few big shots and The President watched Raymond’s live broadcast together.
“Dr. Decker, do you think Raymond’s technology can immortalize the human race?” The President asked in a flat tone.
“President, there’s a theory that has gone viral on the internet. They think that the human mind is separate from the human brain, so consciousness is no longer the same as before! After all, it has been transformed into electrical signals.”
“But this technology actually allows some aspect of a person to live forever, right?”
The President waved aside the philosophical undertones and asked again.
“If you put it that way, yes! But Mr. President, God will not forgive such people! Eternal life is not the path of humanity!”
Dr. Decker said something that he should not have said.
Logically speaking, as a doctor, he would not believe in God.
However, the appearance of such a miracle would cause people who had always believed in science to waver.
Once they had faith, they would only plummet further down the rabbit hole.
Therefore, many scientists actually had faith.
Moreover, many people thought that eternal life was a curse.
They were believed to be the incarnations of the Devil and could not live in the world.
“Since you won’t die, why do you need God’s forgiveness?” The President immediately replied.
Dr. Decker was speechless.
Yes, I won’t die!
Why do I need your God’s forgiveness!
When Dr. Decker remained silent, The President spoke again.
“Dr. Decker, is there a way to preserve a mind forever without repeatedly transferring it?”
Dr. Decker gradually realized what The President was thinking.
He wanted to live forever.
“Mr. President, we do have a problem there! The mysterious 23 grams! I think you are aware of this too!
“Souls, we always thought they were illusory!
“But in some parts of the world, we have found reincarnated people!
“For example, a certain village in China. Most of the people in the village are reincarnators!
“When they are seven or eight years old, they would recall the events of his previous life!
“We have already sent people to verify this! It is true!
“If we can capture souls, then we can achieve eternal life. As for the transfer of consciousness, that is no longer important!”
After Dr. Decker finished speaking, The President fell into deep thought.
A minute later, he asked a question.
“Dr. Decker, why can’t those reincarnated people care about having memories of their previous lives?”
“Mr. President, we have discussed this before. We believe that the human soul is sustained by the body. After they attach themselves to another person and slowly recover the lost energy, the soul will be complete, and they will be able to recall the memories of their predecessors.”
The President dragged out a long voice.
Dr. Decker saw anticipation on his face.
“If I can extract the soul directly, does that mean that I won’t lose too much energy and I can function immediately?”
After The President said that, he lowered his head.
It seemed like he was asking Dr. Decker, but The President was simply thinking aloud.
Dr. Decker knew this and remained silent.
The rest of his men had varying expressions.
Some of them hoped to live forever.
After all, eternal life meant that they could see more of the beauty of the world.
Others had their own beliefs and looked at The President with disdain.
“Dr. Decker, do we have investors waiting for such a project?”
“Yes, there is, but we do not have the budget to proceed.”
“If I give you a billion dollars, are you sure you can show me the results?” The President said seriously.
