Abstract

Can the digital revolution lead to permanent memorials, or even a sort of Internet-based immortality? By reviewing the nature of human intelligence, this article shows that an individual's memory and ideas cannot operate directly without the human body in which they were developed. Further, there is no meaningful way in which technology can allow indefinite access to our culture. However, our lives and actions do influence the thoughts and actions of those who are living, and the Internet can enhance this influence even after our death.
