We're approaching a moment when computers will become intelligent, and not just intelligent but more intelligent than humans.
I would upload my mind unto a virtual world. That would be the only way to really be immortal.
After uploading your mind onto the computer, you still wake up in the real world with your 'mind clone' inside the computer. He/she will live, you will die.
Damn you have a point there. Maybe I could at least make a girl version of myself and have cybersex with her. :P
That's fucked up. I like it.
Fuckin your own self 0_0
The Thirteenth Floor anyone?
Then a virus turns your mind into a zombie. Have fun with that.
Ghost in the Shell cyborg body is getting closer...yeeeeesss... *diabolical laughter*
Aging is a psychosomatic (psycho-physiological) disorder which can be reversed/cured. As for those who are already dead, we will learn how to bring them back using science. A wise man once said: "supernatural is simply a term which we use to define aspects of nature which we don't understand" "The past never really ceases to exist it only moves to a different part/time of the Cosmos" In-depth info about Aging, the human psyche, and psychology here: http://tkn2.activeboard.com... http://tkn2.activeboard.com... http://wup-forum.com/viewto...
And I believe Carl Sagan once said "Any substantially advanced technology shall be virtually indistinguishable from magic". The Law of Accelerating Returns will continue to chug along until we hit "the singularity" which can be described as technology created by humans advancing faster than we can keep up with it. Trust me this makes sense as eventually the technology we create will be able to make itself better. This goes hand in hand with immortality as the vessels that we currently use (our carbon based bodies) will simply be replaced by more advanced silicon based consciousness. I guess the big question we need to ask ourselves is, do we really have a soul?
it was arthur c clarke i belive not sagan
They said the same shit where we'll have flying cars in the 2000s back in the 50s. We don't have shit and we for damn sure aren't getting immortality anytime soon. If anything, we won't have any matrix-esque virtual reality nonsense until 2050 is my guess. I'm going to be an old fuck by that time. 39+22 = 61 ughh.
Well, the flying car has already been invented it just has not been put into mass use because it's not practical. Imagine all the air accidents and cars falling on your house. We need to improve guidance systems and safety measures before flying cars can be fully implemented.
i have a bubble for you. i have thought the same thing only months back. I'd be all up for buying a flying car and redoing my drive-err.. Piots License
While I do not have anything against this research and tech, I do hope everyone knows that man cannot run from what is destined to happen. When Revelations of the bible takes place man cannot hide is cyberspace nor can you truly escape death. Jesus is the only road to immortality. God Bless you all.
Jesus will need to sift through the tor network to find me!
Jesus has mad hacking skillz...
Yeah what winle said. He hacked death itself.
@Hozi89 You speak the truth bro... one correction though, it's Revelation (without the plural "s"). BTW... Revelation is unfolding before our very eyes now, the problem is the majority of humans are too entangled in entertainment/technology to even notice. The good news is, more will start to take notice in the next 6 to 9 months. Satan & his gang are working overtime because they know their time ruling this earth is very short! They're killing the US economy which will start to bring down the world economy... the "New World Order' is coming to a neighborhood near you, one currency for all! There is only one way to be saved... "Jesus is the only road to immortality." Cheers!
Thanks for the correction bro. I couldn't have said it better myself. It's good to know I'm not alone when it comes to these things.
I can only think of two (a movie and a manga) that has the "implant your mind" into someone else for immortality.... SPOILERS Deadman Wonderland Professor Layton movie (the title was longer, I can only remember it having the word eternal Diva or something) END OF SPOILERS Maybe more movies should do this haha
Hebrews 9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for when to die once and after this comes judgment. Everybody already does have eternal life some of those to heaven and some of those to hell. If you repent of your sin and place your trust in Jesus Christ for taking that punishment for you when He died on the cross than you will be in heaven for all eternity when you die. Just the opposite for those who believe in Buddha or any other false religion will end up in hell for eternity. John 14:6 Jesus said I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.
Interesting stuff. I once heard a saying - "Nothing is impossible if we can imagine it." So I guess only time will tell if we can actualize the potential to become immortal through tech.
This article is very insulting to god, god has nothing to do with technology, technology wasn't even built by god himself!, for someone to say ohhhh forget waiting on god, lets just take matters into our own hands, how dare they???!! thats insulting, no one but god can make us immortal, just live your lives people as normally and when the time is right god will come. This sounds like the work of atheists if you ask me, very rude!.
eh dude are you hyper religious. without technology you wouldn't be typing this comment . oh btw DINOSAURS
This is no threat to christian thinking. If you believe that God exists you should not only believe he is immortal but ETERNAL. No start and no end. Scripture says that a day is as a thousand years to the Lord. Even if you can upload your mind into another reality or internet or whatever, the day will still come when you must "die" and face judgement. It wouldnt matter if it was tonite or millions of years from now. What is a million years to someone who has no start or end? And what are we delaying exactly? Are you really so sure that this life is all you should hope for? Just sayin..
epic comments in here, the lot.
Immortality huh... I wonder whether we will reach that stage first where we become one with robots or the stage where AI robots themselves will completely take control of us.. ending the human race... It is a great risk as our body is definitely not possible to live for eternity unless one keeps on changing his or her body. Hahaha:D but still if we intend to achieve something as risky as this we as scientist, programmers, chemist and physisist must take into account the dangers and progress step by step with caution and not with recklessness.
