A Russian Claims We'll All Be Immortal By 2045
That's great, I guess. Not to be a jerk, but I was sort of hoping that when we found out how to live forever, it would just be like me and 14 other people who got to do it. If everyone lives forever, we'll all get sick of each other, and it won't even be that special.
Dmitry Iskov, the man behind something known as the 2045 Initiative, claims that immortality is just a few years away, but the problem is it involves people's minds inhabiting holograms, rather than their bodies. LAME. I want my body. I'm very greedy when it comes to news like that. Here's a chart outlining the schedule as Mr. Iskov sees it today:
So we have about eight years before we need to be putting brains into artificial bodies. Better get cracking, guys, cause it seems like we're a ways off from that first one. And I'm not even going to ask what "Body B" is.
You know what? I'm comofortable with everyone dying. This is too much this early in the morning.
