Do you not see that god, our creator built these machines into the grand design and seeks to utilize them for greater heights? Is it not apparent that if we accomplish the hybridization of man and machine it was destined to be? Why wail and fret like children when god has empowered us to help craft our own future transcendence as god did gods own? [/quote] Our physical bodies are meant to be finite. Tinker with machines all you like, it is not immoral to do so, but the soul will still depart when it needs to. Anyone who experiences what it's like beyond the veil would never want to artificially extend their natural life. Even if we lived in a utopian society, the higher dimensions are still better. [/quote] The Higher dimensions are believed to be better.. as far as quality of existing. But without an area of strife...learning is limited... and I know of no better teacher than experience. [/quote] I agree with that, however there is also a limit on the number of different experiences one can have during this life. Extending life won't change this, except for adding the new experience of living longer than previously possible. But I doubt that actually leads to soul growth if it doesn't help you become more spiritual. To me, extending the life seems to create limitations because it only stalls what new things you will experience after the body dies. I view it as a form of procrastination. Unless there is some task to be accomplished in this life that requires me to live longer, living longer than 80-90 years serves no point. Not everyone will do marvelous things during retirement.

Ian Pearson is a British futurist, cybernetic expert and artificial intelligence researcher.
Some experts say downloading all recorded memories from a brain will be happening before 2020.
If this is being talked about in Public Field it's probably already active underground, don't you think? Because the Mil. is usually at least 40 years ahead of the curve.
Has anyone seen Caprica or Battlestar Galactica?
Caprica is the beginning of the Cylons. They are created the exact same way, by downloading all the memories of an individual into a computer that then turns the memories into an Avatar. This creates a spark of life and turns the Cylons into living beings.
The Digital Immortality Institue (DII) is researching this now.
Anders Sandberg a member of the new transhuman movement (Beyond Human), believes uploading minds and downloading them into new bodies is imminent.
So Cloned bodies with Artificial Intelligence = New Human / Super Human.
This is some incredible technology really. Think about it, cloned bodies with immunities to almost everything, no defects, then downloaded memories combined with new memories / software. The new brain would have a direct connection to the BORG via Wifi.
Another Transhumanist, Al Yudkowky is convinced this technology must be developed befofre a group or gov. with evil intentions does it first.
Do you guys think this is a good idea?
