We learn little about humanity when we imagine that all aliens are humanoids.
All that can uploaded is the information, and all that can be modeled is the information processing capacities, contained therein.
Our ancestors didn’t anthropomorphize the earth to give causal explanations. They did it to humanize it and to make worlds. The simple proof is we do the same thing to mechanical and virtual worlds.
That depends—is “human” meant as a compliment or an insult?
These, as far as I can tell, are perfectly synonymous expressions.
