Did you ever think that humans could achieve immortality? Well that possibility might not be quite as absurd as it seems. In February 2011, Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov founded Initiative 2045 with the following goals: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimal conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. The objective will be to create an artificial body into which the human’s personality can be transferred to intact in order to extend aging, even to the point of immortality. When asked about this transformation of humanity to neo-humanity, the project website stated “We believe that it is possible and necessary to eliminate ageing and even death, and to overcome the fundamental limits of the physical and mental capabilities currently set by the restrictions of the physical body.”
So how will this take place? Well, there are four different phases that will take place between 2015 and 2045. The first is Avatar A and will take place from 2015-2020. This will involve the use of android avatars controlled by a brain-computer interface. It will give people the ability to work in dangerous environments, perform rescue operations, and travel in extreme conditions. The second phase is Avatar B, which will take place from 2020-2025. This involves the “creation of an autonomous life-support system for the human brain linked to a robot, ‘avatar’, will save people whose body is completely worn out or irreversibly damaged. Any patient with an intact brain will be able to return to a fully functioning bodily life.” Avatar C will be created during 2030-2035 and involves the “creation of a computer model of the brain and human consciousness with the subsequent development of means to transfer individual consciousness onto an artificial carrier.” This will give people the ability to have a cybernetic immortality along with a friendly artificial intelligence. Humans will be able to greatly expand their capabilities and even be able to modify or restore their brain multiple times. The final phase of this initiative will be completed by 2045 and involves the transfer of the human mind into an artificial body, so that it is no longer dependent on a mortal body and could theoretically live forever.
I am 100% on board with this project. It is beyond amazing that we could actually be considering something like this as a real possibility. The things that humanity could achieve if this initiative was successful would completely change life as we know it. It could be the turning point in the history of humanity. To overcome life’s biggest obstacle, death, would exponentially expand what we could achieve as human beings. We wouldn’t be robots either, we would have the body of a robot but still be able to maintain our personality and have emotions and be unique from other people. Neo-humanity is the future and I look forward to seeing how this initiative progresses.
