With the recent release of the movie, Self/Less, where Ben Kingsley’s wealthy and powerful character transfers his consciousness into the body of a much younger Ryan Reynolds for more longevity, there is a natural curiosity about whether this sort of thing is even remotely plausible.

The curious guys at Science Asap explore that very question in this interesting video.


The answer? A resounding maybe, kinda, theoretically, but…

That dang human brain of ours is so staggeringly complex that, in truth, it seems more improbable than possible.

While researchers have been able to stimulate areas of the brain to recreate memories (like the smell of burnt toast), the human brain is never fixed, but continually shifting and “remodeling.”

So the idea of “consciousness” as a fixed thing that can be transferred is not really accurate.

Also, the sheer amount of information and connections our brains contain is literally mind-boggling. The average brain has 1000 times more synaptic connections than there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy.

Yep, that’s a lot.

Enjoy!
