FAQ

What is a Mindfile?
A Mindfile is a web-based storage space for organizing and preserving critical information (digital reflections) about one’s unique and essential characteristics for the future, and to share with friends and relatives in the present. To create a mindfile account click on Sign Up.

What does it Cost?
All LifeNaut.com Mindfile Accounts are free. While basic accounts will continue to be free, there may be premium services added in the future that will be offered for a fee.

Will I be able to share the digital reflections/ files that I store in a Mindfile Account at LifeNaut.com?
The choice is up to you— you can set your account to “private” or “public.” The Terasem Foundation encourages the sharing of digital reflections. One of the goals of the LifeNaut Project is to encourage unity and diversity among its participants. To that end, LifeNaut.com permits all users to access and download any other users’ digital reflections/ files that are “public.” Can anyone create an account at LifeNaut.com?The Terasem Foundation invites anyone over the age of 13 to participate.

What is a Multi-User Mindfile?

Multi-User Mindfile makes it possible for a group of LifeNaut users to work together in building a single Mindfile. For example a Multi-User Mindfile could be created about an historical figure such as Abraham Lincoln or even one of your family descendents. By collaborating on a Multi User Mindfile, a group shares the workload and therefore decreases the amount of time it takes to build a robust Mindfile. Collaboration also taps into the diverse resources and synergy of a group of people working together on a single Mindfile. Multi-User Mindfile accounts can be created by anyone with a LifeNaut user account about anyone. All Multi-User Mindfiles will have a green (+) symbol next the to file name.

What is the LifeNaut Project?
The long-term goal is to test whether given a comprehensive database, saturated with the most relevant aspects of an individual’s personality, future intelligent software will be able to replicate an individual’s consciousness.

So, perhaps in the next 20 or 30 years technology will be developed to upload these files, together with futuristic software into a body of some sort (Mindclone) – perhaps cellular, perhaps holographic, perhaps robotic. LifeNaut.com is funded by the Terasem Movement Foundation, Inc.

The LifeNaut Project is organized as a research experiment designed to test these hypotheses:

(1) a conscious analog of a person may be created by combining sufficiently detailed data about the person (“mindfile & biofile”) using future consciousness software (“mindware”), and

(2) such a conscious analog may be downloaded into a biological or nanotechnological body to provide life experiences comparable to those of a typically birthed human.
