"3.0": Preparing To Transplant A Human Brain Into A Robot BodyWhat if science made it possible to preserve your brain in a cybernetic capsule after the death of your body, and transplant the capsule (your brain) into an... avatar (a human-like android)? This sounds like the exact opposite of "brain death" and organ donation, right?
"A young Russian billionaire has launched his own Avatar project. Dmitry Itskov plans to make a human brain immortal by transplanting it into a robot’s body. The Project’s aim, Itskov says, is to create an autonomous system of human brain nutrition, preserve nerve connections so that the brain does not degrade or die, making it possible to transplant a human head onto an artificial body. For real."
The 3.0 era has already started (read here). It includes Human-Like Androids, Brain-Computer Interfaces, Bionic Prostheses, Engineering Memory, Consciousness through Spiritual Practice, Mind Theory (see the program of "Global Future 2045 Congress Program" that took place in June 2013 here).
Our brain could outlive our body (and live for 200 or 300 years!)
Avatars like the ones you saw in the James Cameron movie could become available in 10 years! Is this sci-fi or science?
Now you remember we have an established "post-mortem" organ donation system, based on some kind of belief that the human brain possibly dies before the rest of the body, which provides transplant surgeons with enough time for working (living) vital organs retrieval - from a "brain dead" body with a beating heart (what we call "a dead donor")... Now what if science shows that our brain outlives the rest of our body (by more than 100 of years)?
I guess saying "2045 avatar project milestones" pretty much sounds like saying "the death of brain death milestones"...
