This brief and simplified discernment is to complement the following research https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1906/1906.02813.pdf:
Upload and download of consciousness should also be added to the science fiction list. In other words, copy, repeated, upload, and download are possible for memory and information but not for consciousness since consciousness is not only state of being but rather "continuous dynamic and transformative state of being. And becoming or emergence of many sentient composite body-mind system subtle body-mind rather than just brain, physical body, body-mind, or just information". Furthermore, consciousness is not only function of physical body but is primacy of subtle body-mind of many sentient composite body-mind system. In other words, mind belongs to the emerging subtle body-mind (of the many sentient composite body-mind system) and not the physical body (i.e. they are intertwined and entangled). And the real and true states of being and becoming are of the subtle body-mind mediated by the physical body.
In other words, the physical body is mean to create, develop, nurture, shape, and purify the emerging subtle body-mind or spirit-soul potentialities of possibilities. And the real and true self is the emerging subtle body-mind. Furthermore, Consciousness can only be processed through the ground of being. And nature process (and mechanism) or the greater whole.
Consciousness is thought to be copied, repeated, downloaded, and uploaded able since:
1.0 Consciousness can be stated to be unknown to science. And humanity as a whole.
2.0 Science has yet to acknowledge much less explore the subtle body-mind of the many sentient composite body-mind system.
3.0 And even when 1.0-2.0 are better known; copy, repeat, download, or upload functions would not be possible since consciousness is "continuous dynamic and transformative state of being. And becoming or emergence of many sentient composite body-mind system subtle body-mind rather than just brain, physical body, body-mind, or just information".
4.0 As previously mentioned, consciousness can only be processed through the ground of being. And nature or the greater whole process (and mechanism).
However, in actuality or reality, it is literally far beyond extreme and out of this world complexity).
And therefore, functions or features that are not compatible to the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature would not be possible. For example, the enclosed research analysis also implied that ancient re-incarnation myth is not part of nature of reality and truth. Another way of saying is obtained past lives memories are possible since these are information (i.e. memory and information are integral parts of consciousness but are not consciousness. An extremely simple analogy as an illustration is computer memory and information or data are parts of the OS (and complement hardware) but they are not OS (and complement hardware) which can be downloaded or copied (i.e. sentient are intertwined and entangled with and in the local and non-local cosmos) through nature process of intertwinement and entanglement. However, the information or memories do not mean past life of the individual that obtained them but rather of past life (lives) of others due to reasons 2.0-4.0.
For the above reasons, sentient human consciousness can NEVER be downloaded or uploaded (since it is a continuous process of being and becoming or process of emergence of the subtle body-mind experience of the world rather than just information. However, downloading or recalling memory and information to the physical body such as brain is possible (and also uploading the perception and experience or memory and information to equipment). And which would affect the experience. And therefore, would influence consciousness. In simple words. can affect or influence consciousness through sentient perception and experience of life and existence (such as those that experienced past life (lives) memory and spiritual or living cosmic existence experience)) by any other mean other then only through the ground of being and nature process or the greater whole process (and mechanism) . And as had discerned in diverse ways in past discernments.
