There are plenty of robot stories, most of which ask the same question: “Can a machine have feelings?” But there is a bigger, more troubling question. Futurists believe that you will soon be able to download your personality, your sensibility, your memories and quirks – you - into a technological device, replacing your carbon-based body with a silicon and plastic version, placing you inside of a robot. Much of the technology already exists. Soon, disease and aging will no longer threaten you. Your body will be upgradable and replaceable, your personality saved and backed-up forever. Which means that you will never die. But humanity depends on mortality. If we never die, what becomes of love? Of concern for the future, of sacrifice and goodness, of urgency, passion and compassion? If we are soon to become immortal, the real question is: "Can a machine have a soul?"
