"Classification of the Approaches to the Technological Resurrection" 

Abstract. Death seems to be a permanent event, but there is no actual proof of its irreversibility. Here we list all known ways to resurrect the dead that do not contradict our current scientific understanding of the world. While no method is currently possible, many of those listed here may become feasible with future technological development, and it may even be possible to act now to increase their probability. The most well-known such approach to technological resurrection is cryonics. Another method is indirect mind uploading, or digital immortality, namely the preservation of data about a person to allow for future reconstruction by powerful AI. More speculative ways to immortality include combinations of future superintelligence on a galactic scale, which could use simulation to resurrect all possible people, and new physical laws, which may include time-travel or obtaining information from the past. Acausal trade with parallel worlds could help combine random resurrection and reconstruction based on known data without loss of share of worlds where I exist (known as existence measure). Quantum immortality could help to increase the probability of success for cryonics and digital immortality. There are many possible approaches to technological resurrection and thus if large-scale future technological development occurs, some form of resurrection is inevitable.

Highlights:
• Resurrection is reconstruction of personality based on information.
• The problem of personal identity will be solved in the future.
• If large-scale future technological development occurs, some form of resurrection of the dead is inevitable.
• The main player in this resurrection will be powerful AI.
• Combination of random mind generation and acausal trade between parallel worlds in the multiverse allows resurrection of all the dead without loss of “measure”.
