Frognose
[22:39] Dude we don't got this

Jocelyn Around
[22:39] We didn't even make it to the third phase.

Lilybell Fortemps
[22:40] so
[22:40] one more go?

Jocelyn Around
[22:40] Sorry, I have to get to bed early. Dr's appt in the morning.

Lilybell Fortemps
[22:40] awwww

Frognose
[22:41] Is everything okay?

Jocelyn Around
[22:41] Yeah, just annual checkup.

Marinara-Trench
[22:42] make sure you kick them on purpose when they take the hammer to your knee

The Devil Reversed
[22:43] They're not gonna do a brain scan, are they?

Jocelyn Around
[22:43] Probably. They do it every year, so...

The Devil Reversed
[22:43] Nooooo don't let them

Marinara-Trench
[22:44] yeah if you're gonna go crazy you do it on YOUR TERMS
[22:44] don't let them stop you!

The Devil Reversed
[22:44] Shut up, Trench, I'm serious

Lilybell Fortemps
[22:45] whats wrong w brain scnaning

Jocelyn Around
[22:45] I think I missed something.

The Devil Reversed
[22:45] At least ask if they can do an old-school, like, EEG or MRI instead of a full-on QSUI

Lilybell Fortemps
[22:45] scanning*

Jocelyn Around
[22:46] Why though

nate the snake
[22:47] ohhhh qsuis are like
[22:47] The one that just straightup copies oyur brain to the internet right

The Devil Reversed
[22:47] To a digitized format but yeah
[22:48] It encodes your brain and everything about it as a computer program, a really big one

Marinara-Trench
[22:48] oh dang

The Devil Reversed
[22:49] That's how they can SO accurately check your like mhealth and risk factors

Marinara-Trench
[22:49] cool

Jocelyn Around
[22:52] ..okay... so what's the problem?

The Devil Reversed
[22:53] They are literally making a clone of you
[22:53] QSUI scans are literally sentient

nate the snake
[22:53] their ROBOT CLONES

The Devil Reversed
[22:55] The scans get saved basically forever, they use them in medical research mostly but sometimes sell some batches to companies to do stuff AI isnt suited for
[22:56] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Mechanical_Turk fo rexample

Amazon Mechanical Turk
Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a worksourcing website for businesses (known as Requesters) to hire virtual workers to perform discrete on-demand tasks that artificial intelligences are currently unable to do. Remote human workers were utilized until 2029, when advances in quantum ...

nate the snake
[22:57] oh wow their robot SLAVE clones

Frognose
[22:57] I mean, they have a choice of whether to do the job or not.

The Devil Reversed
[22:58] They're sentient computer programs, they get SHUT DOWN if they refuse to do the work

Marinara-Trench
[22:58] do u get paid

Jocelyn Around
[22:59] That sucks and all but
[22:59] I have genetic markers for a couple different brain problems.
[22:59] Am I just supposed to not get the scan?

Lilybell Fortemps
[23:00] just get the scan, you'll be fine.
[23:00] imma go make a donation to that quantum scan rights org the wiki mentioned

Jocelyn Around
[23:01] Good idea!

Marinara-Trench
[23:01] its not like one person or even like ALL OF US deciding not to get anymore qsui scans would stop it from happening

The Devil Reversed
[23:01] No it wouldn't but think about it.

Marinara-Trench
[23:02] im thinkin about it

Lilybell Fortemps
[23:03] 💭

The Devil Reversed
[23:03] If your brain image gets used its gonna think like you and think it IS YOU. It has ALL YOUR MEMORIES including right up until when you GOT THE SCAN. So if you think about it PERCENTAGEWISE

Jocelyn Around
[23:04] ???

The Devil Reversed
[23:04] There are 1000s of people in the future who have the memory of being you right now having this conversation
[23:04] What are the odds of YOU winding up being the one who actually comes out of the machine?

Jocelyn Around
[23:09] It's not a machine they put you into, it's a helmet they put on your head.

The Devil Reversed
[23:09] Oh ok that TOTALLY solves the problem
