Yes its true. Thirty two-year-old Russian Billionaire Dmitry Itskov has been on this project since 2011 when he founded the 2045 Initiative.
Itskov has recruited several scientists and also wrote an open letter to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, asking him to support to push society’s transition to “neo-humanity.” He also wrote to all the Billionaires on Forbes list July last year (2012) to support the project.
According to the website Digital Trends.His ultimate goal is to transfer a person’s mind or consciousness from a living brain into a machine with that its personality and memories intact.
Itskov hopes the Initiative will have learned enough about the human mind to free it completely from physical form finally, by 2045.
The “Cyborg” will take no physical form, but will exist in a network similar to the Internet and be able to travel at the speed of light all over the Earth, or even into the space,something like what we saw in the Movie Avatar.
Itskov’s first project, called Avatar A, involves a person controlling a robotic human replica through a brain-machine interface (BMI), a technology that already exists.
The deadline for this first stage is set for 2020, as reported.
According to the project website they said:
“We believe that it is possible and necessary to eliminate ageing and even death, and to overcome the fundamental limits of the physical and mental capabilities currently set by the restrictions of the physical body,”
The Avatar B, due in 2025, would involve transplanting a human brain into an artificial body “at the end of one’s life.”
The Avatar C, due around 2035, that would also involve a human-machine brain transplant, but with all personality traits intact.
