George Jiri Opletal (3:634/397.0) on "What if?" with me (12 Oct 98)...

RT>> From what you say above, the theory predicts physical properties and
RT>> particles.
RT>> How does one go from this to an afterlife (as that was the
RT>> original question)?
GJO>   Well, the afterlife as proposed by this theory is very different
to
GJO> conventional ideas on the subject.  Firstly, the case is made that
GJO> humans can be emulated just like any other machine [this also means
GJO> that computers can someday pass the turing test]. The theory next
GJO> predicts that under a special gravitational collapse of the universe
GJO> [which living creatures must produce], condition become possible to
GJO> produce a computer which has its computational speed and memory
GJO> diverge to infinity become the final collapse.  Because of this
GJO> increasing power, all possible histories are emulated which includes
GJO> yours or my ideal world or what ever.  Normal you can not obtain
GJO> sufficient information to emulate a human being, however by emulating
GJO> all possible combinations, any future history or past is played out.

GJO> Tipler adds that the Omega point will be the moral guide in picking
GJO> which histories are to be played out since in a great deal of them,
GJO> you will be in terrible pain for example.  However, I don't buy it
GJO> since I find it difficult to understand how such a claim can be made
GJO> about the extreme far future [far longer than the earth's history].

GJO> There are some other problems, but its an amazing theory.

Sounds like science fiction to me.
