Anybody wants to look like Terminator?

September 23, 2009 § Leave a comment

Twenty years from now, we will probably live forever. That’s the prediction of noted American scientist Ray Kurtzweil. Kurtzweil believes that our understanding about genes and nano technology is accelerating in astronomical speeds that, we will reach a point where we can now replace old and sick body organs with nanotechnological devices.

Yes, Kurtzweil says that our scientific knowledge would allow us to defeat mortality.

In his new Theory on Law of Accelerating Returns, Kurtzweil says that within twenty years, scientists can now re-program our bodies to defeat ageing.

“Ultimately, nano-bots will replace blood cells and do their work thousand of times more effectively. Within 25 years, we will be able to do an Olympic sprint for 15 minutes without taking a breath or go scuba-diving for four hours without oxygen.” says Kurtzweil.

The catch? Kurtweil sees our bodies becoming robotic, like those we saw in those Terminator movies. Cute.

“Nanotechnology will extend our mental capacities to such an extent we will be able to write books within minutes.

“If we want to go into virtual-reality mode, nanobots will shut down brain signals and take us wherever we want to go. Virtual sex will become commonplace. And in our daily lives, hologram like figures will pop in our brain to explain what is happening.

“So we can look forward to a world where humans become cyborgs, with artificial limbs and organs.”

Any takers? Anybody who wants to look like Arnold? Or anyone wants virtual sex anywhere?
