This idea is very far-fetched simply because I don't think the technology exists to do this yet.

The two basic elements are the human brain and a personal computer with a very high hard disc capacity. What I have dreamed up is this: I'd like to be able to take all the info. from a person's brain and copy it to a PC. That way, that person's knowledge could live on forever. Take, for example, the physicist, Stephen Hawking. If his knowledge could be transfered to a PC, then all that Hawking ever knew about black holes, physics, space, etc., could be preserved forever, and could be accessed by other physicists who may study black holes. As things currently stand, there are other scientists who are taking notes on the stuff that Hawking knows, but there could still be a lot that has been missed. If only there was a way to hook up electrodes to his head, and somehow be able to copy EVERYTHING he knows to a PC, that would be wonderful.
