Immortality Close? 2045 Initiative
Posted 30 July 2012 - 07:04 AM
Basically some rich Russian guy is trying to organize the world together to achieve immortality by 2030, and perfect it by 2045. So far what I've seen of it it looks like its not a scam, and apparently experts say that the timeline the project has is feasible.
2015-2020 Creation of Avatar A, a robot android that can be controlled via brain computer interface (being able to control another robotic body remotely via pure thought) This is possible as different parts of this technology are emerging already (You can do some of your own research, I can't do everything for you.)
2020-2025 Creation of Avatar B, a robot android that one can transplant their brains into at the end of their physical bodies lifespan (aka if your heart or lungs fail and etc.) The life-support system for the brain would keep us alive for a few hundred years longer, but would not indefinitely keep us going as the brain ages as well, albeit slower than the rest of the body.
2025-2030 Creation of Avatar C, a robot android that one can transfer their conciousness and personality into a cybernetic substrate. (This part may be more difficult than at first glance, seeing that not only would we have to create a perfect copy of the human brain, and reverse engineer its workings, but also somehow find a way to transfer the conciousness into the cybernetic substrate. You can't use traditional data transference methods (like how copy and pasting works in a computer) because that would just kill the original you, and make a copy of you that is exactly identical and thinks its you. I believe its possible, but may take longer.
Whats everyones thoughts on this matter? Do you believe it will be possible within the time periods posted on the site?

Holy fuck I'm going to start saving now, now that's a push on what humans can do, what would I search to read more on this?
2045 initiative. Also 2045 Initiative is their main site, they keep a steady news feed on recent technological breakthroughs on all scientific fields. Also for more video's (though half of them seem to be russian) go to GF2045

Ok awesome! If this becomes literal by 2045 it would be epic.
Honestly I think by 2045 its a bit optimistic to think they will reach everything they wanted to achieve by that point, but I do believe we will have at least be able to upload our conciousness (and I do mean our litteral consciousness, not just a copy of it) onto a cybernetic (possibly bio mechanical as well?) substrate that could hold our consciousness indefinetly, or at least with proper maintenance and the occasional upgrade.
How about the Methuselah Foundation?

I've been waiting for this!
Let me google that for you
Ah yes, that's quite interesting actually. Both fields have potential study. (Next time I'll try to remember to google it, just I had to many damn tabs already open.)
Very interesting, hopefully if they mass produce it won't be too expensive.
Exactly. I'm saving up, just in-case (well I believe one should have a large savings of money for emergencies or awesome stuff like this. It's hard when your just starting out though as I'm just 20.)

What if we get hacked?
Or if we get too close to a magnet

You won't have to worry about that because the rich and powerful will probably be the only people allowed to access this technology.
