Tonight, I watched Blade Runner 2049. Before going to the theater, I watched Blade Runner final cut. I can’t say I found answers to some of the questions from the first movie. What makes us alive? Is it our memories? Our fear of death?

The new movie teases with some of the questions we had about Deckard being human or a replicant. It also raises the questions about our memories making us human if they are real or made up memories.

I just finished reading Infinity Born, a book that also tackles some questions about being alive. Our bodies are slowly replaced, atom by atom, every 5 years or so. Since we are not the same atoms of our childhood, how can we be the same person? How does all that life experience persist even when we are periodically refreshed at the atomic level? The book goes into AI, AGI, and ASI. There is also delving into transferring consciousness and such.

The new Blade Runner movie doesn’t answer any of the philosophical questions. It does move the story of the replicants forward.

I should like to get things done, if given the opportunity.
