There are four major technological approaches to augmenting the mind: Capacity, Capability, Relocation, and Longevity.
Capacity means expanding the mind's storage. Most of my thoughts about this paper were on my COMPUTER. Not here (GESTURE to head) but there (POINT to laptop). So I used a mind augmenting technology to write this paper.
The enhancements to Capability are only limited by imagination.
Relocation proposes to upload the brain (or mind or consciousness) to a computer. More than just relocating the brain, this is also copying and more than one copy is possible.
A by-product of uploading the brain is immortality in digital form. Therefore, Longevity is one of the mind augmenting technologies.
