Resurrection through technology
A Manifesto
wuscape
Our endeavor, the highest possible,
is the resurrection of every sentient being who ever lived,
through our own efforts,
to an excellent life without limits,
except limits which prevent contradictions
with the first parts of the statement.

Summary of our quest
Who should be resurrected by the advanced beings of the future?
Every sentient being who lived. Not only us humans. Also evil persons. If you can resurrect, you can probably heal them from their evilness and remove the pain from their victims.
Who are the performers?
We can't say. We try to create the performers of the resurrection. We don't assume their existence already.
Which limits are there in this project?
Limits which prevent the destruction of our potential to do what might be possible
The highest possible endeavor?
Yes!
First steps towards the how-to
Harsh conditions
Requisites according to our assumptions

We need

• blueprints of the minds to create

• machines that could build something with the same functionality as a brain

• vast amounts of resources
The three pillars of resurrection
Dig deep, count high, think hard
aMethod
Hyper-archeology supported by a theory for almost everything combined with the systematic variations over possible minds, is a possible way to achieve our goal under harsh conditions.

How?

The knowledge about all conscious beings who ever existed, are existing and will exist, is incomplete. We and our (hopefully very advanced) descendants are lacking complete knowledge about exactly how most conscious beings actually were, felt, thought, experienced and lived.

Consider, once, before you existed, you were just a possibility. When you are dead, you are a possibility again. So, therefore:

Assembly all possible conscious beings who could have existed 'at all'.

Make 'the potentials' real. Create them all.

In this case, one of them will actually be ...you.

Seems insane at a first glance.

The needed resources are incredibly big.

To reduce this enormous number of potential beings, a number much much bigger than the number of atoms in the visible universe, we must derive as much fact about the past as possible. We must develop the discipline of hyper-archeology.

With a helping hand from a theory for Almost Everything, a theory useful enough to do the job, it is possible to reduce events with a low probability, t.i. to exclude the vast, unimaginable large number of those who didn't actually exist.

In other words:

1. More information from the past, through natural and man-made records, will reduce the number of individuals our descendents have to construct in order to 'cover' all 'real' conscious beings.

2. When some information isn't derivable, use the method of systematic variations over possible minds around (on) records and derived information.
We guess, there will always be some sine realis praeterita, but that's fine. They are welcome!

3. A theory for almost everything is needed when deriving facts about the past and reducing the number of systematic variations. ('The lady wasn't falling up and out in space' and situations like that. Physically impossible situations.)
Remarks
Can we do it?
It's a hard problem. Death. Can we solve it?

No. We can't. Not at the moment and probably not in the near future.

However, consider benevolent and superintelligent AIs, constituting a civilization on a very high Kardashev - level, working on the problem of death for some million years.

Ordo Terminalis strives to replicate the will to build such a super civilization and imprint our goal in the core of it.

This our duty shall burn in the hearts of generation after generation of our true members or in the goal of unconscious or conscious and superintelligent machines.
Organize already today
Which way is the best? It depends on your personal skills, knowledge, where you live, your contacts, your health, your time, resources and so on.

When getting active, the working principles should serve the goal. If the context changes, adapt, as already declared. Learn from others, measure the effect of their actions, analyze, plan ahead, lern. Don't continue with non-working methods, just try different ones until the actions are getting momentum.
We have a few proposals.
• Start discussion groups

• Promote space exploration

• Take the fight in order to legalize cryonics

• Societal mindfiles for apocalypse light

• Create your own party

• Record as much as possible of your thoughts, emotions and reactions.

• Translate this manifesto to other languages

• Found a micronation, a serious one.

• Theoretical work.

Go spread our message, or work in the dark, join others or work alone.
