When Jon had barely turned 13, he was told that his father had ‘passed’. “Wait a week,” his mother reassured him, “He will pass back.” Jon had learned in school that humans are data cattle; our every move is tracked by an algorithm that has learned our behavior patterns. “What is an all-go-reeth-em?” Jon had asked his mother when he was young. “It’s you. It learns from you. It continues as you even after you pass,” she explained. Her response was simple and heartening, but it created more questions for the curious child. Every night before sleeping, he wondered, “But is it still me?”

No one cried when Jon’s father passed. When the hard disk arrived a week later, his mom looked rather relieved. 100 terabytes of his father’s essence – a virtual tomb or a resurrection? Jon recalled a recent newspaper advertisement, “You can be one in a million (literally!) A beautiful server farm you can retire to. Your personality will always be part of a productive society, economy AND even politics!”

A forbidden thought snuck into Jon’s mind. He suppressed it and smiled at his dad-disk, while his mother beamed. “Where do we really go after death?”
