"At the end of days - which could be when Messiah comes or some time after that - there will be a miraculous resurrection of the dead. According to Jewish tradition the body doesn't decompose fully; a tiny fragment of bone from the neck is indestructible. From this bone the body will once again grow and all people who ever lived will once again come back to life and reunited with their souls. (They will be fully clothed and look like they did at the prime of their life.)"

I read that and my mind went immediately to the cortical stack. Influence or coincidence, Richard?

That is a very cool find.

That is indeed very fucking cool.

I *wish* it had been an influence, I wish I were that erudite. But sadly, no - my knowledge of Jewish religious beliefs is really pretty flimsy.

Also pretty spooky, it strikes me, the way this seems to anticipate stem cell research....

It does seem like our imagination shapes the impossible to somewhat likely on a daily basis.

Well, coming across that tidbit was the starting-gun for my yearly re-read.

I present to you my obviously very well-read copy of Altered Carbon:

Purchased in Knoxville, Tennessee at least six years ago... it's been to New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, and is now parked next to my keyboard in Miami. The cover's about to fall off :-(
