Immortality, last evolutionary step

It may sound like science fiction, but the fact is that there is a project whose ultimate goal is to achieve something like the immortality of the human being. This project is called Initiative 2045, although it is also known as Avatar, and is powered by Russian billionaire Dmitry Itskov. The biggest obstacle is the technology to make it happens, because no one has yet developed the ability to transfer the individual consciousness to robots and holograms, which is ultimately what Itskov and his team of scientists are looking for.

To achieve this goal four phases are planned: 1) Avatar A, which will take place between 2015 and 2020, in which we can control a robot with the mind; 2) Avatar B, between 2020 and 2025, in which be able to transplant the brain of a person —at the end of his life— to a robot, 3) Avatar C, between 2030 and 2035, in which we will create an android with an artificial brain, to be provisioned awareness, memories and knowledge of a person before die; and 4) Avatar D, between 2035 and 2045, the last phase in which our mind may be transferred to a hologram, without the limitations of biology, to which we are now subjected.

Itskov, just 32, is convinced that the cybernetic immortality can be attained, and it is devoting his life. He boasts that this project is supported by the Dalai Lama and, as said in an interview for Muy Interesante magazine, its intention is ‘to build a society where people are able to live in abundance and for a long time, not only in our planet. Although we are already technically capable of sending settlers to the Moon and Mars, with our biological endowment will not survive there for long. Artificial bodies, however, would become futurnauts, early settlers, the conquerors of the Universe. So we no need to eat or drink, we survive extreme heat and cold and we would adapt to the high and low pressures’.

The Avatar Project emphasizes that all is part of the evolution: it is the last step to reach the higher stage. It will be born a wiser, peaceful and fairer humanity. The idea, today, seems utopian. ‘Civilization has become unthinkable technologies into reality; it is not a fantasy’, insists Itskov. Will we be able to become beings of light? The answer is coming soon.

Actualmente es profesor emérito de la Universidad de Warwick, en Reino Unido. Es conocido por su labor divulgativa de ideas como la importancia de la creatividad en la educación y el desarrollo de las capacidades y talentos de los individuos para un desarrollo de sus potencialidades. El autoconocimiento y la mejora de la relación del individuo con su entorno, cómo ser activo y agente de cambio, son para el profesor vías para un mayor bienestar de las personas y del mundo en el que viven, desde su entorno más próximo hasta todo el planeta Tierra. Este vídeo, ¿Cómo eres inteligente?, ha sido creado por The Inspiration Journey a partir de un fragmento de una conferencia del profesor titulada El mundo que exploramos, que tuvo lugar en  la cumbre del Zeitgeist Americas 2012. En él, los autores nos invitan a reflexionar sobre su discurso: la importancia de la creatividad y de la inteligencia, no en su cantidad si no en cómo la usamos, y el papel clave que tiene ese modo de usarla en nuestro bienestar y en el de nuestro entorno. También, cómo el camino para encontrar un auténtico equilibrio entre las dos partes del todo —nuestro mundo interior, quiénes somos y el planeta que habitamos y compartimos— reside en la educación.Ken Robinson is a British educator, writer and speaker, expert in matters related to creativity, quality of education, innovation and human resources.

Currently he is an emeritus professor at Warwick University, United Kingdom. He is known for his revealing work on ideas such as the importance of creativity in education and the development of an individual's capacities and talents for a better development of his or her potential.

This video, How are you intelligent?, has been created by The Inspiration Journey from a fragment of a Ken Robinson's speech named The world we explore that took place at the summit of Zeitgeist Americas 2012.

And also, how the way to find an authentic balance between these parts of the whole —our inside world, who we are and the planet we live in and share— lies in education."

Fundó la escuela de psicología analítica, también llamada psicología de los complejos y psicología profunda. Relacionado a menudo con Sigmund Freud, de quien fuera colaborador en sus comienzos, fue un pionero de la psicología profunda y uno de los estudiosos de esta disciplina más ampliamente leídos durante el siglo XX. Su obra es prolífica y durante la mayor parte de su vida centró su trabajo en la formulación de teorías psicológicas y en la práctica clínica, aunque también hizo incursiones en otros campos de las humanidades, desde el estudio comparativo de las religiones, la filosofía y la sociología hasta la crítica del arte y la literatura.

El abordaje teórico y clínico de Jung enfatizó la conexión funcional entre la estructura de la psique y la de sus productos, es decir, sus manifestaciones culturales. Esto le impulsó a incorporar a su metodología nociones procedentes de la antropología, la alquimia, los sueños, el arte, la mitología, la religión y la filosofía. En este vídeo nos habla sobre el poder del constante proceso de retroalimentación entre el mundo interior de cada uno y el exterior, entre lo imaginario y lo tangible, entre la fantasía y la realidad.Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss medical psychiatrist, psychologist and essayist, and a key figure in the beginnings of psychoanalysis. He founded the school of analytical psychology, also called psychology of the complexes and depth psychology. Often associated with Sigmund Freud, with whom he initially collaborated, he was a pioneer of depth psychology and one of the experts of this widely studied twentieth century discipline. His work is prolific and for most of his life he focused his work on the development of psychological theories and clinical practice. He also made forays into other fields of the humanities, from the comparative study of religions, philosophy and sociology to art criticism and literature. W_freud

Jung’s theoretical and clinical approach stressed the functional connection between the structure of the psyche and its products: its cultural manifestations. This prompted him to incorporate into his methodology ideas from anthropology, alchemy, dreams, art, mythology, religion and philosophy. In this video he talks about the power of constant feedback process between one’s inner world and the outside, between the imaginary and the tangible, between fantasy and reality."
