I've always wanted to upload my brain to a computer so I could have unlimited knowledge or rather that limited only by the internet.

Just think if we all did that we would become the borg! Borg or matrix very little difference.

More like the copy of your mind would get to become the Borg. Your original, fleshy self would continue as normal.

Well then I would just get the best of both worlds

A person can tell that they are themselves a thinking being. However, a person cannot tell that another has thought independent of their own. Even if I could somehow connect my brain to yours and see your thoughts, how would I know that your thoughts were not just extensions of my own, an illusion to make the world around me seem real?

You seem to sort of generelly agree with me.  I grant you some degree of existence.

Locked up for 17 years, as I understand it. Had to be taught how to even walk when his "keeper" decided he was too much trouble and dumped him in some town. Turned out to be pretty smart.

Just curious, how do the recent posts have anything to do with whether Jesus actually existed or not?

Externalized chattering-monkey-brains ... Grasshopper.

But I didn't know that this so called "wolf-boy" existed either.  I would give him better odds of being historical than the Jesus guy.
