We Will Know the Secret of ETERNAL LIFE by 2029, Says Google Chief
THE process of achieving immortality will begin by 2029 when nano-bots are created that can swim through our bodies to fight disease, a high ranking Google executive has said.
Google’s Director of Engineer Ray Kurzweil believes that we are little more than a decade away from taking major steps towards immortality.
The tech specialist, who has long supported the notion of immortality, says that medical advancements and improved technology in the coming 12 years will see humans being given the option to live forever.
Mr Kurzweil said: “I believe we will reach a point around 2029 when medical technologies will add one additional year every year to your life expectancy.
“By that I don’t mean life expectancy based on your birthdate, but rather your remaining life expectancy.”
By 2045, the 69-year old says, humans will be able to live forever.
He continued: “The nonbiological intelligence created in that year will reach a level that’s a billion times more powerful than all human intelligence today.”
The Google chief says that one of the steps that will allow us to live forever will be the invention of nanotechnology that can be placed in our bodies.
Once inside, the minuscule bots will be a significant improvement on our immune system and will be almost 100 per cent effective at fighting disease.
Another step will be connecting our brains to the internet or a cloud network, which will be as big of a step in evolution as when our ancestors developed the frontal cortex 2 million years ago, according to Mr Kurzweil.
He said: “We’ll create more profound forms of communication than we’re familiar with today, more profound music and funnier jokes.
“We’ll be funnier. We’ll be sexier. We’ll be more adept at expressing loving sentiments.”
