Well, I would imagine that would depend on what you are uploading into. If
uploading into VR, then that is SL3 (ie: old hat). If transcending via
uploading, then that is SL4. I'm mostly concerned with the singularity
myself, but uploading into VR may be a necessary step on the way there.

Speaking of shock levels, I'm a bit curious. How many people are actually
at SL4? The definition of which would be that they accept the singularity
as a near certainty and plan accordingly. Or is there a better definition?
