Cylong resurrection ships
Resurrection ships are the key to Cylon regeneration. When Cylons dies, the contents of their brain are sent wirelessly to the resurrection ship where they're placed into the brain of a waiting replacement. When that replacement is activated, the memories are streamed in, and it's as if the death of the original never occurred.
The closest thing we have to that in modern day technology is the idea of cellular memory. This theory believes that memories are passed along at a cellular level and separate from the brain. However, this is no replacement for the idea of being able to live forever using the same mind and different bodies.
