Futurist Claims Humans Will Soon Attend Own FUNERALS In New Body

According to the MIT Technology Review, a US-based startup called Nectome is trying to devise a way to preserve the human brain so that its memories can be uploaded to the cloud, which could eventually lead to humans attending their own funerals in a new body.

Would you like to live forever? Well, some experts say you might.

Last week, a former Google engineer said he believes that humans will achieve immortality within the next eight years.

Ray Kurzweil – who has an 86 per cent success rate with his predictions – thinks that advances in technology will quickly lead to age-reversing ‘nanobots’.

While it sounds far-fetched, scientists have been looking for years into ways we can regenerate our cells, or upload our minds to a computer.

Electronic immortality

The idea of uploading your mind to a computer has been theorised for many years now, but it has mostly remained the stuff of science fiction.

Nectome, a US-based startup, is trying to change that by devising a way to preserve the human brain so that its memories can be uploaded to the cloud.

The firm has figured out a way to preserve the human brain in microscopic detail using a ‘high-tech embalming process,’ according to the MIT Technology Review.

It uses a chemical solution that can keep the body intact for hundreds or thousands of years as a statue of frozen glass. 

‘You can think of what we do as a fancy form of embalming that preserves not just the outer details but the inner details,’ said Robert McIntyre, Nectome’s cofounder.

Speaking to prospective customers, Nectome positions its service as: ‘What if we told you we could back up your mind?’

Former Google engineer Ray Kurzweil, who spoke on the YouTube channel Adagio, said that humans will achieve immortality in 8 years.
