(ORDO NEWS) — Incredible and slightly frightening visions of the future will become a reality in the coming decades. According to futurologists, people of the future will gain immortality and will live in the body of a machine.
Dr. Ian Pearson predicts that a person will be able to transfer his mind into a computer and one day go to a funeral where his former biological body will be buried.
Cyborgization also has positive aspects. Let’s take into account that we can change each of our limbs for a more perfect one. Today’s advanced prostheses have a sense of touch – we can feel, for example, temperature, pressure, or the material an object is made of.
We could get new legs, which would practically solve the disability problem. In addition, we could implant brain implants that would improve our memory, intelligence, or make it easier to learn new skills.
However, futurist Dr. Ian Pearson, in his blog, points out possibilities that are partly exciting and partly terrifying.
According to him, future technological advances will allow us to gain immortality by copying our mind and transferring it to the cloud. From this moment on, a person will be able to live forever in digital form and “settle” in the body of any cyborg.
Dr. Ian Pearson believes that in this capacity we will be treated not as an ordinary computer program, but as a living, albeit digital, person.
The futurist believes that the first people will be able to do this no later than 2050, but cyborgization, at least at the initial stage, of course, will be available only to the richest.
Digital immortality will become somewhat more accessible in the coming years as prices for cyborgs drop, but today it can be assumed that the almost unlimited possibilities that arise as a result of transferring your mind into the body of a machine will most likely be available only to a small group of people in the world.
