3 min readThe 2045 Movement And The Many Paths Towards Human Immortality

The following article was written by Tom Ward and was published by Futurism last August 18, 2017.

In it, Ward discusses the many paths to human immortality afforded to us by modern technology. For this article, however, Ward focuses on the 2045 movement which offers four avenues to attain human immortality.

Editor’s Note: Even though this article was years ago, we are now seeing the acceleration towards the goals of the 2045 movement. We are also seeing that the timeline they presented in the article was not really chronological. Instead, research on all four is being done simultaneously.

The experimentation has also led “them” to realize that some paths are easier to implement than others. For example, brain transplantation may be far off into the future[efn_note]https://www.wired.com/story/if-you-transplant-human-head-does-consciousness-follow/, https://neuroscience.stanford.edu/news/brain-transplants-are-they-possible, https://mindmatters.ai/2021/03/are-human-brain-transplants-even-possible/[/efn_note], and a “hologram-like avatar” more achievable. Could this be the reason why the Metaverse has become a priority for these transhumanists? [Read WEF LAUNCHES METAVERSE, PREDICTS DIGITAL LIVES WILL BECOME MORE MEANINGFUL THAN PHYSICAL LIVES].

The question now is not: “Can we create immortality” but rather, “Is it possible to transfer consciousness to another body”?

Like brain transplantation, downloading of consciousness is impossible, [see WHY MATERIALISM CANNOT EXPLAIN CONSCIOUSNESS, MATERIALIST THEORIES OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS NOT PLAUSIBLE, NEW FOUNDATIONS FOR A SCIENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS, THE CAMBRIDGE DECLARATION ON CONSCIOUSNESS, IS TRUE ARTIFICIAL CONSCIOUSNESS POSSIBLE?].
