I stumbled onto an interesting topic the other day, and then came across this site 2045.com 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?
