I remember reading a short story about a man who imprints his consciousness to a robot in order to achieve immortality. The robot becomes more and more powerful and survives past the existence of humans. The robot/man consciousness decides to create a world based on his memories of his life as a human. The robot is in essence God.

Anyone have any idea of the story I am talking about and where I can find the full text?

    Can you recall any other details? When did you read this, for example? – Adamant Aug 30 '16 at 8:46
  • Obligatory: are you sure this isn't The Last Question by Asimov, which this bears some resemblances to. – Broklynite Aug 30 '16 at 10:56
  • I'm positive this isn't "The Last Question" by Asimov although it was likely inspired by it. As I recall, the robot is the last intelligent being and creates a world out of loneliness. – sci-fi nerd Aug 30 '16 at 18:01

    It sounds very similar to this 4chan post. imgur.com/gallery/NMPyl – Paul Aug 30 '16 at 18:16
  • This is a long shot and it's not a short story but the final book in Asimov's Foundation series has something similar to this. You may find the answer within the universe it shares with his Robot series. – Rob Rose Nov 19 '17 at 10:55
