>If Dmitry Itskov's 2045 initiative plays out as planned, humans will have the option of living forever with the help of machines in only 33 years.
>It may sound ridiculous, but the 31-year-old Russian mogul is dead serious about neuroscience, android robotics, and cybernetic immortality.
>He has already pulled together a team of leading Russian scientists intent on creating fully functional holographic human avatars that house artificial brains which contain a person's complete consciousness - in other words, a humanoid robot.
>Together, they've laid out an ambitious course of action that would see the team transplant a human brain into an artificial body (or 'avatar') in as little as seven years time.
So, according to his theory, will he transfer your "consciousness" into a robot, making your body an empty husk, or will he "copy" it, making another version of you inside the robot, in which case, it's not really "you" and you will still die with your body.
Assuming everyone will transfer themselves into robots, what will that mean for the continuation of the human race? what happens to procreation?
And personally I think there are worse things than death, like having your robot thingy hacked, or controled by however designed it, turning you into some sort of freak, or a prisoner inside your own mind without the release of death.
