Implanted digital immortality

The development of information technology will make digital immortality available to all. This can be achieved through implanting neuro-nanorobots into the brain. Despite having similar properties to ordinary cells, they differ from their living cousins in a number of important ways: they are programmed to interact with a computer; they are immortal; they can draw energy both from the organism and an external source, etc. This type of nanorobot scans information about a cell, writes it to itself, and then replaces the cell. Initially, it is implanted into the blood, whereupon it proceeds to extract vital matter from the biowaste of the body’s organs and build its own copy. The process of replacing the brain takes place over an extended period, and painlessly for the patient, who can continue their daily activity during and after the process. In addition, the patient can load firmware to augment reality or enhance their personality, and after the body’s natural death the brain sends a signal that it needs to be extracted and connected to a special computer. Thus, the person attains digital immortality. This brain will be the center and processor of the data array, and, curiously, will retain its own consciousness.

Darko Dimitrijevic Normally, there is no such a think among the humans like immortality. Remember that. A man in the hospital with a pump instead of his own heart died from an unknown cause...his soul was gone away from "unknown reasons". 08 Nov 2019
Henrique B. Martins I think metaphysics and after life is real, so i don't like this idea, but even if it would be possible, i think only by 2070 or even 2100 31 Oct 2019

john malone i hope so this will be the next step for humans and i hope im alive to see it 09 Apr 2019
Jonathan Jason Best Gagné I believe full blown immortality could eventually happen with nano bots however I think that major revolutions in life extension and rejuvenation by 2050 will be done by fixing the causes of aging with compounds, stem cells and gene or epigenetic editing. I strongly believe that nano technology will have a role in this from now and 2050, by assisting the aforementioned mediums. I don't think we will reach full peak immortality in 2050 but it doesn't matter. I'm 37 at this time but I speculate that there are very good odds that I will be a full blown immortal in my lifetime, just not by then (2050). However, in my opinion, by 2050 I'm sure someone that will be my age will easily be able to look like we do now (20s&30s) with a life expectancy easily from 100 to 200 years old. Not only will we live that long but we will in a youthful and healthy body and mind. I think after another 50 to 100 years after this revolution, true immortality is very possible and the merging of technology and humans seems very likely. 13 Mar 2019

Daryl Johnson If, curiously, the nanorobot brain was doing a flawless impression of the original human brain, could we tell the difference? 26 Feb 2019
Jack I think this is an eventual possibility, but I don't think we'll be there by 2050 because of the ethical difficulties of human testing. 06 Feb 2019
Hazonku As Jack mentioned, the ethics alone will prevent this. Religious nut jobs will freak out. Aside from that, 2050 is barely just over 30 years from now. Aside from some generalizations about certain areas controlling certain functions we barely understand the physical attributes of the gray stuff & its relation to the nervous system let alone any dreams of understanding consciousness. But I absolutely could see nanobots helping the brain with nervous disorders, phantom limb syndrome, and neuropathy caused by medications like chemotherapy. 06 Feb 2019
Patrick Harper No way canada will let human testing of anything remotely like this. 06 Feb 2019
Dave Van De Kerk Not within 30 years. Maybe 130, but not 30. 06 Feb 2019
John Replacing parts of the brain slowly over time is the only way to retain continuity of consciousness instead of just making a "copy" of it. IMO. I'm doubtful your method will be doable by 2050, but I believe we can do it through simpler means by then. 06 Feb 2019
