Brent,

I agree.  About 10% of all humans who have ever lived are alive today.
 With a silicon-based brain, we could experience things about 1,000,000
times the rate our biological brains do.  If the humans that uploaded
themselves spend just 1 day (real time) experiencing other human lives that
is equivalent to 40 human lifetimes worth of experience, and thus 80% of
all human lives experienced would be simulated ones. (After that 1 day)
 This is after just one day, but such a civilization could thrive in this
universe for trillions of years.

Jason
