Splendid video, Gospodin, Danaylov! You cut to the heart of human identity with Shakespeare yet! Bravo. I look at it this way, if we have a chance to insert a fully functional mechanical heart, in the chest of a child, who has no replacement transplant heart, ready for the surgeon to connect in, versus let the child perish, I would opt, mechanical, all the way, and so would most people.

If we have a soul, like thinkers such as Ben Goertzel, or Eric Steinhart say, it is a pattern connected with memory (which may also be a pattern. Thus, it's pattern identity, all the way down. (to quote Sagan). I am not saying that there is nothing spiritual in the universe, but I am suggesting that physics laws must play a part.

Keep on vlogging, please.
