Transplanting human minds:Immortality in 2045 A Group Of Scientists Aim To Transplant Human Minds
Russian scientists in Zelenograd, outside Moscow, are hoping to make thinking robots a reality. Media magnate Dmitry Itskov, who is funding the project, believes that within just 10 years, his team of scientists will be able to "transplant" human minds into robots. The project, named "Avatar", was unveiled at the Global Future 2045 international congress in February. "If we talk about the reality of scientific research in the context of immortality in 2045, then any well-formulated research problem can be solved. It is a matter of time, money and the involvement of professionals in this task", Itskov explains. The scientists have built a prototype humanoid named Dima - and say he will eventually be able to read human thoughts. But Itskov's ultimate ambition is to create hologram-type bodies that can "host" human consciousnesses - potentially making humans immortal. Orthodox Church representatives have voiced concerns over the research. "Since the time of the Garden of Eden, the creation of mankind, the question of immortality troubled man, but after the Fall. Before the Fall, he did not know neither death nor immortality, he was made eternal", Father Riyakhovsky says.
