If any reader walks away two things to remember about Your Digital Afterlives, it is Promotion and Revision. Revision Theory, from the professors point of view, seems to indicate, basically the idea of Hugh Everett the 3rd's theory based on his interpretation of quantum mechanics, where all humans (specifically) have exact clones in other, closely related universes. Of more encouragement to me, is Steinhart's concept of Promotion, in which the direct passing of information, memory, and personality, from world to world, seems plausible, where as, Revision, is simply a clone, with their own experiences and memory. Thus, the information that we are, sort of perishes permanently. There is a chapter in the books that states that Revision is Promotion, but on this I am not certain. Lastly, there are Steinhart's not of gods, or angels, or operation systems, running each universe-with Digital Afterlives, these are all the same! Ultimately, in this book, the Professor does view an ultimate creator-mind-God, that Steinhart argues is the basic hardware, on which all resides. With Digital Afterlives, it's to paraphrase Carl Sagan, simulations all the way down. I hope my review and comprehension doesn't offend the good, Professor, too much in my review, but this is what I took away. Excellent and inspiring.
