Method #3 for my transformation project is immersive virtual reality.
My Idea of how this would work:

possibility 1- (a true simulation)
-have the spinal cord be run through a computer
-record and analyze input data from a simularly wired subject
-human brain directly interacts with the computer, instead of its own body
-computer sends maintenece signals to the body (eat, move about, bodily functions) without the brain being involved
-any errors in the coputer would be compensated by the adaptive learning capabilities of the brain (see "the terminal man" by Michal Chriton)

possibilty 2- (a virtual brain transplant)
-have the spinal cord run through a computer in subject A
-do likewise with subject B
-send input from A's brain to B's body
-send input from B's brain to A's body
-send output from B's body to A
-send output from A's body to B
-any difference in A and B's nerological systems would be translated either by the computer or by their respective adapitve learning.



Difficulties of possibility 1
>Need for a very powerfull computer
>Need for some very fancy programming
>Need to maintain contact with the computer

Difficulties of possibility 2
>Need for a willing (or unwilling) partner to switch with
>Need to maintain contact with that partner
>Gives partner controll of one's own body
>Requires that two organisims are kept alive, not just one

Benifits of possibiltiy 1
<Could be used temporarily or permanently
<No need for a partner
<Virtual world could be idyllic

Benifits of possibility 2
<could be used temporarily or permanently
<more feasable
<probably more realistic



Remember, this is just a fallback method, in case Mass to energy conversion and DNA manipulation fail.

Anyway, what do you think?

I really do not know what is the best I'm pretty sure there are some moral gray areas there. But these ideas seem pretty well thought out and feasible. I really like the idea of immersive virtual reality.
