" . . . Personally, I don’t mind the idea of being turned into mulch. . . ."

Words of wisdom for Grarpamps and his fellow list trolls, Garofalo and Semich - ROT in PEACE

Where they burn Transhumanists - there they will burn Transexuals

I may be tending synthetic  - but I'm not stupid enough to self-immolate over it. 

The range of possibilities open to a conscious being in cyberspace is difficult to even begin to visualize. You would become effectively immortal within a computer program, immune to disease, aging, or injury. You could inhabit a fantasy world not subject to our physical laws, possessing the power to metamorphose into any form, or instill your consciousness into any object within the program. You could possess the power of flight, or the ability to perform telekinesis. You could modify your existing environment on a whim into forms unknown on Earth, or seemingly anywhere.

Not that an upload is limited to the environment within a program. If the concept is feasible, then we should be able to place the computer program within any vessel that can sustain it.
