Cybyrev seeks to preserve individual consciousness

The Terasem Movement aims to preserve 'units of beingness' or individual uniqueness through cybertechnology. More specifically:
Terasem Movement, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity endowed for the purpose of educating the public on the practicality and necessity of greatly extending human life, consistent with diversity and unity, via geoethical nanotechnology and personal cyberconsciousness.

Terasem accomplishes its objectives by convening publicly accessible symposia, publishing explanatory analyses, conducting demonstration projects, issuing grants and encouraging public belief in a positive technologically-based future.

The Terasem Movement was formed in 2002. A sister organization, the Terasem Movement Foundation, was formed in 2004.

The founders of Terasem are concerned that the potential of nanotechnology and cyberconsciousness for relieving human suffering and extending human life will be truncated due to unwarranted fears and concerns. The founders are also concerned, however, that nanotechnology and cyberconsciousness could be made available only to an elite, or in a manner that creates class divisions within society. The founders believe that nanotechnology and cyberconsciousness needs to be developed consistently with full respect for diversity and unity so that the potential for greatly extending human life and relieving human suffering can be realized.
The movement aims to preserve human consciousness particularly in the event of an existential threat. I came across the website today which is called Cyberev.
Curiously, this comes on the heels of a powerful dream I had last night:

I was witnessing a line of robots that were being trained to socialize with human beings. People were greeting these robots and shaking their hands. However, I did not do so. Instead, I warmly shook the hand of the inventor, who was walking alonside the line of robots, and congratulated him on his scientific achievement. The investor replied that I should be following the protocol and shaking the robotic hands, not his, to which I said that these robots were still rather primitive and merely following crude, programmed responses. What, he then asked, is the difference between their claims to consciousness and yours? They are not yet conscious, I replied. Aha, he said, but someday soon we will inject their minds with a substance that encapsulates a human experience and has the capacity to self-evolve. That then, will make them conscious at last.
Cy-be-rev. Stands for cybernetic beingness revival. The rev could be revoultion as well. It sounds like a futuristic techno revisitation of gestalt psychology or like the combination of twenty-first century data and the encounter groups of the sixties. But there is something fundamentally decent and ethical about the notion of prolonging memory and experience through telecommunications and robotics. A kind of immortality, if you will, through something different and arguably more extensive than the written word. Let's just say that I was not surprised to see a Passover Haggadah and a Freedom Seder associated with this project.
