You’re not software running on hardware. Your consciousness is emergent from a complex interplay of chemical reactions, electrical impulses, and the entire physical structure of your brain. ~10^15 neural connections. 100,000 chemical reactions per second with secondary, tertiary, quaternary, etc. effects. 86,000,000,000 cells. Not all that are needed for you to be you, but a large percentage of them are required. “Mind uploading” will be an entire emulation of a human brain with all of those properties accounted for. Finding a biological way of extending aging in humans will happen long before that.
