Many scientists and thinkers are suggesting that the answer to eternal life has literally been right in front of us for a while now. The head of British Telecom's futurology unit Ian Pearson stated back in 2005 that rapid advances in computing power would make cyber-immortality a reality within 50 years. Using the incredible jump in the computing power of the Playstation game systems as an example. In fact Moore's law states that "over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years". More recently in 2013 one of todays great minds and Google's director of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, suggested that the ability to transfer the entire human mind to a computer will be achievable within four decades. There are continuous advances in computational genetics supporting the claim that mind transfer is the key to human immortality. Massive supercomputers are beginning to simulate the mind. Leaders in A.I. (artificial intelligence) are developing robots/machines that can think, reason and learn by mimicking the brain. Computer interfaces that can read the signals in your mind are quickly advancing as well. Here's a definition of a way mind uploading could work from scientist Randal Koene: "The functions of mind that we experience are originally implemented through neurobiological mechanisms, the neural circuitry of our brains. If the same functions are implemented in a different operating substrate, populated with parameters and operating such that they produce the same results as they would in the brain, then that mind has become substrate-independent. It is a substrate-independent mind (SIM) by being able to function in different operating substrates. The popular term ‘mind uploading’ can refer to the process of transfer, moving a specific substrate-independent mind from one operating substrate (e.g., the biological brain) to another". While it may seem evidently possible, some still highly doubt the possibility. Saying that recreating the consciousness of a human is far fetched. For example, neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis stated that the theory of technological singularity is just a bunch of hot air. Saying that humans will never be able to download/program their thoughts and/or memories into computers. http://chirpnews.com/2016/04/05/mind-transfer-to-computer/ What do you think? Is this our way to immortality?
