Well not 2030 that's to close but it is possible within my lifetime or my childs (if technology and science keeps going up in pace)

people underestimate the amount of research and things that will happen within 10-20 years alot ...that's why people never expected tv's or cars to exist because to them that kind of thing seemed to be 50-100 years away.

We will have life extension by 2030 not immortality but it will be setting closer and closer till biological immortality becomes the norm.

I don't doubt great changes are going to occur, but immortality is quite a stretch for 2030.

Which is true but still i can see the main works being set down by 2040-2060.

Especially with all the moneyand time being pooled into research of it by google and other places

I personally would refuse immortality even if it was given to me for free. Part of life is death without that there would be no point.

I don't think it would work out because it would have mass psychological effects on a human being. I mean some of us freak out when we cant wake up from a dream

For me it is all about the journey, not the destination. I would gladly accept the option to extend the journey indefinitely

I don't foresee a cure for old age by 2030, but I do foresee new medicines adding 10 - 20 years to our lifespan. New life extension technologies may well be developed within that 10 - 20 time frame.

One of the key points of the original article I linked was using the mind/computer interface to greatly increase human computational ability. If this comes to pass, technological advancement will accelerate far beyond its current breakneck pace. Life extension technologies included.

I fight to stay in my dreams. I feel more at peace there, where I can edit/revise events until I am happy with them.


That said; I'm sure there will be serious ethical and legal issues that need to be addressed.

I don't think people who make guesses about virtual reality actually understand how the brain/body works and the complications involved.

This.

Scientists have a very poor understanding of how the brain works.
Most "neuroscience" research is guesswork based on MRIs of blood flow into the brain.
It's a very very difficult area to research intelligently and ethically.

During the 1980s scientists believed the brain operated like a computer, and coincidentally, the 1980s is when all of these mind-computer interfaces were popular in sci-fi. We now know this assumption is totally false, but the sci-fi ideas based on a faulty premise have stuck around.

Human consciousness is far too complicated for our current understanding to be transferable to a silicon medium like people in the 80s thought. It would require an almost godlike understanding of human anatomy and an appropriate technological medium, certainly not one that can put on the market in a matter of decades.

You do realize scientist already have functional mind/machine interfaces and the ability to directly transfer basic thoughts from one individual to another. While still rudimentary, the technology stopped being science fiction years ago.

The mapping of the human brain and how it functions is far more advanced than you believe.

Care to explain? It seems to me you're bitching about people not talking important manners, as if we're suppose to dedicate 100% of our lives to important manners and not hobbies and miscellany.

Since at least some prosthetics turn the chemical signals into to digital, maybe they can use that technology to create a full dive.

Well with how this article looks I don't want anything to do with it. Going into my brain? xD What If I got a virus on my computer and it got into the chip or whatever they use for the full dive tech. Not interested unless it's something less.. intrusive.

I personally don't think Full Dive technology would even be released for consumer yet alone the military any time soon. We're on the brink of Virtual Reality headsets and its usage isn't anywhere near deeply acculturated into our society yet. It's likely a few decades off. Neurologists say we don't even know much about the brain yet to even manipulate it safely.
