A weird idea of how to live forever?

In the advent of advanced technology, what if there comes a time when it is possible to store your brain [memory, thinking process, intelligence, etc.] to a flash drive, and then transferring to another person [as if some sort of brain transplant, lol!] sort of erasing that person's memory and having yours to replace it. would you likely try it?

Ah, that reminds me of cryonics. Scientists are hoping that the time will come when people will be able to live forever. But I am not interested in that idea for myself. I am still tempted. I want my parents to be living forever with me. For this reason, I do support cryonic and repair technologies. I did talk to my mom about it. In the beginning, she thought it was a great idea, but then she said that it would not be natural. So there is no point in supporting it.

The natural to the super natural would be a fascinating process, lol! But i guess your mom's right on just going through the natural cycle of life, although it seems to me my curiosity to see what's more to expect in the future is a big lure for me, i.e. man being able to travel to the moon on a vacation, lol! My apologies for the weird thoughts, and thanks for your rational response.
