Since the dawn of mankind humanity has been striving to overcome death. Obsessed with the mysteries and creation of life, for thousands of years we have been searching for answers on how to achieve immortality and to become god-like. Now the mystery is solved. Sort of…
In the year 2011 a Russian billionaire Dmitry Itskov began to fulfil his long-awaited dream of giving humanity a spark of hope in becoming an immortal being. ‘Project Initiative 2045’ has so far been successful in developing artificial intelligence where the conscious mind can be downloaded into the artificial carrier, which is an artificial brain developed for this project. Even though this is still at its early stage of developing, Mr Itskov, together with his scientists, have promised that by the year 2045 the human body would be replaceable with the artificial one with much better capabilities than ordinary human bodies.
A worrying question remains; what will become of us when we accept this new concept of life, of escaping death into the new digital form of reality? After our natural body dies, we‘ll be able to transfer our personality to a more advanced non-biological mind extending our life in a humanoid robotic body as a god-like human managing to upgrade our minds multiple times. But what will happen to our emotions, feelings or hormones that will not be possible to transfer to the Cyber-mind? Somehow, this trans-humanism looks like an immortal soulless software program. An immortal being without empathy and compassion towards others, nor feelings of what love truly is. As Dr Massimo Pigliucci, a professor of Philosophy at CUNY-City College and outspoken critic of pseudoscience and creationism in one of his interviews pointed out, “by uploading and transforming human mind as a piece of the program, we may create an even worst monster than any human has been alive today. A human being without emotional capability is a psychopath.”
Mr Dmitry Itskov has stated this ‘avatar’ will be cheap and affordable to almost every person not only the rich. This may be so, but as we know it from our own experiences, not all smart phones are of the same quality, and most of the time they are under threat from hackers attacks thus forcing us to update software or upgrade to the newest version, which is more costly than we can afford to do. But this is nothing to get too stressed about, because when our digital minds are connected to this collective super-computer we won‘t even be aware of how manipulated we are.
Some prophecies in the two thousand year old scriptures from the Holy Bible resembles today’s events when it comes to science.
Once upon a time, one of the most high ranking heavenly angels, Lucifer, was thrown out with his rebellious angels from Heaven for not submitting to God’s most precious creation- a Human. Since then Satan’s main aim is to destroy His creation by all means necessary. Satan persuaded innocent Eve to pick from the forbidden tree of knowledge, for this transgression God expelled from Eden both Adam and Eve. Since then humanity is eagerly trying to find the way back to eternal life. Satan’s power is limited and therefore cannot create Life but it can resemble it.
In the near future our lives will depend on a computer based system. So that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Revelation 13:17-18 )
This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:16)
