As reported by Discovery News, Russian media mogul named Dmitry Itskov formally announced his intentions to disembody our conscious minds and upload them to a hologram (an avatar) by the year 2045. With this news he outlined a plan to achieve immortality, removing the human mind from the physical constraints presented by the biological human body. In his latest grasp to achieve, he in a letter to the members of the Forbes World’s Billionaire’s List, offered up that immortality to the world’s 1,266 richest people.

Finally, one of humanity's greatest problems is being solved.
The problem is, people simply aren't living long enough. The meager lifespan we occupy isn't enough to reach our full potential. The lengthier our existence, the more advanced the entire species becomes.

And we'll finally get a Dreamcast 2. thumb.gif

So would it actually transfer you into the hologram, or would you still die but there would be a hologram that acts like you?

Nope. You exist as your conciousness. What he plans to do is to transfer that conciousness to a third party body. Also: Hooray for the Dreamcast 2! biggrin.gif

If he makes our bodies holograms though, how will we interact with anything? Usually, science fiction flicks and shows depict holograms as something that is incorporeal, and they can't interact with any normal objects physically.

I don't know how they plan to create an artificial brain when today's supercomputers cannot even accomplish mimicking that of a mouse! I understand that future technology will of course be more potent and have vast more capabilities than today's but still I highly doubt this will see its goals met.

Did anyone else immediately think this?

I see massive problems with the human part of us being able to deal with being stuck in a non-human body. It might just drive people crazy.

One of the major keystones of being human is the ability to adapt.
While I don't doubt the initial experience will be jarring, the human race has proven it's capabilities countless times before.
We'll do it again.
