I have a great great great great grand niece serving as a Quan Tech on board the Humanican Vessel PARADISEINACAN currently parked in orbit around Sirius
The vessel has an official designation as an Information Harvester.
Its current mission is a routine 'Earth Watch'. But for her its kind of special as she will be on shift when she gets to 'scoop n poop' one of her distant ancestors. Me!
For the same reason that trying to explain compound interest to a Visigoth would need some simplification I will do the same here.
The Paradiseinacan has three major components :
A telescopic image magnification capacity that makes Hubble the equivalent of you peering through the bottom of a broken brown bottle.
A microscopic image magnification capacity that make today's most advanced Electron Tunneling Microscope and PET scans the equivalent of you peering through the other side of that broken brown bottle.
And a very advanced data storage capacity.
Being in orbit around Sirius means if you point your equipment at Earth you view it's past.And this is precisely what they do.
With it's vast range, depth of field and scope the crew are able (with a precision we can only extrapolate from todays' sub atomic manipulations) to scan and model each and every sentient 'mind'.
At the exact moment of an individual 'death' the individuals mind is merged (Shut Up Spock) with the highly accurate but not exact 'one we made early model', using algorhythms that would make Alan Turing do a little jig of happiness the two are combined = Scooped
The model/ data is then packed - transmitted - unpacked to Paradiseinacan = Pooped
The individual is then 'resurrected' inside a virtual frame of reference Eden, Nirvana etc. Given the astouding capacity for the mind to adapt the individual can at some point be informed of where they are and can choose accordingly - i.e genuine fundamentalists, Luddites or the spiritualy squeamish can choose to be returned to the void - others can choose to 'grow'. Rightly so the choice is entirely yours.
I don't think any of this subverts the laws of physics and could be well worth considering as one of the principle aims of Humanica.
'We are going to go back for everybody - nobody but nobody gets left behind'
I think it would be a nice 'thank you' to our ancestors for all their hard work - and would certainly restore their faith that the stuggle of life was worth it.
You said Death AND Taxes?
Yeah well if anyone ever showed any interest in Bobocracy they'd know I'd sorted that out as well
