Even though audio & visual recordings of many deceased people already exist, more data would be required to provide
a convincing detailed likeness.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vital_signs would be an integral part of an advanced recording system
of living people. http://transcendentman.com/about/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Replicant , http://www.philipkdick.com/films_bladerunner.html
It seems that a replicant could be based on generic living human traits. However, if a replicant or android is meant to mimic a specific person,
so much extra data would be required. http://www.philipkdick.com/works_novels_androids.html
Current state of the art recording systems don't copy a persons consciousness & synthetic consciousness might never become actual consciousness.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surrogates_(film)#Plot
If one were to link to a sensory surrogate body with a temporary consciousness link, things cold get very interesting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar_(2009_film)#Plot
http://www.wired.com/underwire/2010/10/avatar-sequels/
In Avatar, an experience body is grown so that a human can temporarily link their consciousness to another intelligent species.
The Jake Sully character is in a damaged & later dying body. The Avatar movie provides a depiction of his human
consciouses being transfered into a Na'vi body for the rest of his life.

In teleportation, the objective is to transfer your consciousness into your reassembled body at another location.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transporter_(Star_Trek)#Depiction
If a form of teleportation as depicted in Star Trek is ever achieved, then an interesting byproduct possibility would arise.
A teleportation computer would essentially record all aspects of a person, but still might not be able to capture their consciousness.
http://www.thebigview.com/mind/nonlocal.html
http://homepage.mac.com/dbhill/mystery_of_consciousness.html

According to the non local theory, once the body has been reassembled, their consciousness would instantaneously merge
into the new location of their body.

A PKD android could eventually run from a program that's based on all possible recordings of the original PKD, but
all it would be is a physical likeness without consciousness. http://www.pkdandroid.org/why-philip-k-dick.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_review
Over the years, several people have claimed to have had a life review. There are implications that someone or something records all the
interconnected occurrences & events throughout a persons life. Even their emotions & the perspective of those that they have interacted with.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adjustment_Bureau
This movie depicts beings from a higher level of perception & interaction & shows how most people are just too busy to examine reality.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitter_Sweet_Symphony
Sometimes it just might be a Bitter Sweet Symphony of the process of life, but for many they hope that the future's still bright.

{"One of the alternative suggestions he raised was that UFOs might be better understood within a framework that suggests that the cosmos itself might function like some sort of computer simulation program; the appearance of UFOs (and other paranormal phenomena) might represent "glitches" in the program."}
{"On a 26 July 2009 Radio Misterioso program, Greg Bishop interviewed Mac Tonnies; the subject of the simulation universe was discussed in the following manner. Tonnies observed that if the cosmos is a simulation program, UFOs could be manifestations created by the cosmic system operators of the simulation. We could exist as a construct for some other intelligence. Anomalies such as UFOs could be intrusions into our reality from the simulation system, an intrusion which exists at an architect level or as a built-in program, built into the mind or even into the universe itself. If the program is built into the system, then we could never catch up with it; it could thus function as a developmental catalyst..."}
