Potentially an interesting question, though, is would it still mean
anything, if there were no consequences?
I think there are still consequences of your actions, I don't imagine
uploading would be an entirely solitary experience, you would still
interact with others and create new relationships. There would be few
external consequences seen from outside the computer, but I don't
think that diminishes the goings on within. Much like someone could
point to a dreaming person and say it doesn't matter if he is having a
nice dream or a terrible nightmare, I think it still matters (to
person who is dreaming).
I think, according to Bruno, this is where we already are - being
generated digitally by the UD. :-)
