Lifetimes Infinity’s goal is to develop technologies that incrementally build toward mind uploading. We’re a group of immensely passionate people dedicated to making mind uploading possible and sharing that technology with the world. Our ultimate goal reaches beyond mind uploading into all aspects of indefinite life, but for now we’re focusing all our efforts onto mind uploading.

Mind Uploading

Mind uploading is the process by which an entity’s personal identity is transferred from one operating platform to another (e.g. from biological operating platform substrate to digital operating platform substrate). This definition is substrate-agnostic and does not require the substrates to be different (meaning a biological to biological transfer would be considered mind uploading). Anything that doesn’t transfer between operating platforms and anything that doesn’t transfer personal identity is not mind uploading. So simply making a copy doesn’t transfer the mind.

Indefinite Life

Indefinite life is the non-zero chance of surviving for any given indefinite period of time. For example, both biological immortality and digital immortality imply that death is still possible, just that it won’t be caused by aging. They refer to a state where indefinite life is sustainable (non-zero chance of survival). In the circumstances where indefinite life is used as a goal, it is being referring to as the maximization of survivability.
Indefinite life seems to be the second most common use of the word “immortality”, meaning that you live indefinitely but can still be killed. Indefinite life could simply be taken to mean that you can repair damage to your body faster than the damage builds up, whether you are in human form or some other substrate.
