What is the minimum amount of memory capacity needed for a Bionic Identity to be considered happily alive. Followed to extremes, we can imagine personalities completely unable to form any new memories, but are sufficiently developed in reflex like programming routines that they are conscious and happy. Even more abstract but viable Bionic Identities can arise. A Pure Awareness Creature would be an entity that has strictly the minimum amount of complexity needed to be self aware, without any further abilities to record information. A kensho / satori zen experience may point to this state of existence and subjective reports of being in a state of onrushing rapture. Awareness Creatures may be imagined as the first layer of contact between the thought-space and matter.
