Ray Kurzweil: Immortality Just Eight Years Away?

Ray Kurzweil is a Technocrat and Transhuman who has long predicted the Singularity coming to reality by 2045. Now he is upping his prediction to 2029, just 6 years away, stating the immortality for the living is near and achievable; however, he is personally focussed on resurrecting his father, which is a different issue from immortality.  ⁃ TN Editor

A former Google engineer has made a stark realization that humans will achieve immortality in eight years – and 86 percent of his 147 predictions have been correct.

Ray Kurzweil spoke with the YouTube channel Adagio, discussing the expansion in genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics, which he believes will lead to age-reversing ‘nanobots.’

These tiny robots will repair damaged cells and tissues that deteriorate as the body ages and make us immune to diseases like cancer.

The predictions that such a feat is achievable by 2030 have been met with excitement and skepticism, as curing all deadly diseases seems far out of reach.

Kurzweil was hired by Google in 2012 to ‘work on new projects involving machine learning and language processing,’ but he was making predictions in technological advances long before.

In 1990, he predicted the world’s best chess player would lose to a computer by 2000, and it happened in 1997 when Deep Blue beat Gary Kasparov.

Kurzweil made another startling prediction in 1999: he said that by 2023 a $1,000 laptop would have a human brain’s computing power and storage capacity.

Now the former Google engineer believes technology is set to become so powerful it will help humans live forever, in what is known as the singularity.

Singularity is a theoretical point when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence and changes the path of our evolution, LifeBoat reports.

Kurzweil, an author who describes himself as a futurist, predicted that technological singularity would happen by 2045, with AI passing a valid Turing test in 2029.

It is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human

He said that machines are already making us more intelligent and connecting them to our neocortex will help people think more smartly.

Contrary to the fears of some, he believes that implanting computers in our brains will improve us.

‘We’re going to get more neocortex, we’re going to be funnier, we’re going to be better at music. We’re going to be sexier’, he said.

‘We’re really going to exemplify all the things that we value in humans to a greater degree.’

Rather than a vision of the future where machines take over humanity, Kurzweil believes we will create a human-machine synthesis that will make us better.

The concept of nanomachines being inserted into the human body has been in science fiction for decades.

Kurzweil, like all the technocrats, believes he IS his body, which is not actually the case, thus this essay.

Erik Nielsen

Good one. Kurzweil is in love with his own package :-D.
For more advanced people the package is irrelevant. Its the content stupid.

You MIGHT know what you are in essence, but I doubt you know what “he” is at all. You think “we” are all the same? That’s just silly.

These EVIL Psychopaths already know that HUMANS are ALREADY Immortal (we get reincarnated many times over, until we reach the highest Conscientiousness). Since these DEMONS are NOT HUMAN, they know that they will go ‘somewhere special’ (with their Master, in ‘hell’)…..which is why they desperately want to ‘cheat death’. Sorry, the Universe/GOD doesn’t operate that way; THEY WILL FAIL!! lolol

Sorry, reincarnation/transmigration etc. are utterly bogus

Smorgasborgas Smith

And AFTER we achieve that “highest conscsiousness”, then what, oh Well-Read One? And what is that highest consciousness? Is that where we are just always at peace with the creator, or some other junk propaganda we’ve been reading forever? Seriously, any “creator” that puts his obviously sentient/conscious creations through so much BS is an obvious evil entity. The ONLY thing that was created by any creator is all of the TRAPPINGS of this so-called world. What if all of these characters with which we interact each day, or observe, are just robots put here to be background? Will they still… Read more »

Tech has gone too far

Technology has already been proven to evolve humans in reverse. People are not getting smarter because of technology they are getting dumber, and worse, humans are so dependent on technology they are becoming as helpless as dogs who need their master to do everything for them because they have lost their survival skills and independence. In the future humans will simply be pets for robots. Who the hell wants to live forever like THAT? I’ll take my human dignity any day over immortality as a dehumanized pet.

Curing all diseases is not within reach at all, it’s regression. That’s been done, just not for the public in general, and never will be. Curing anything is wimple, if you can work at the cellular level…can they?

Kurzweil not looking so good. He looks like he is aging. Oh no.

We are already immortal beings- I can partly recall several past lives and even lives where I was back in source (not this fake AI heaven that most people with near death experiences talk about) and where I was some sort of plasma (I don’t know how to describe it better) but completely aware being an individual spark of consciousness but also being everywhere and everything. The technocrats will create a timeline where you will be completely fragmented into some binary AI world you will not be able to die but your soul will slowly disintegrate an become stuck between… Read more »

Un vecchissimo libro di fantascienza di cui non ricordo il titolo, prefigurava che i miliardari, gl’oligarchi che comandavano noialtri:”bestiame, gregge” grazie alle tecnologie sarebbero diventati immortali ma noi “il bestiame” saremmo rimasti mortali Poi capitò che una nuova malattia, terribile, senza cure… colpĂŹ l’umanitĂ  sia noi-il “bestiame” che le elitè di oligarchi… milioni di popolani morirono, altri sopravvissero, ma i miliardari le elitè NON POTEVANO MORIRE erano immortali cosĂŹ furono condannati a soffrire per l’eternitĂ  Nessuno poteva aiutarli a non soffrire o a morire, perchè LORO gli oligarchi avevano precluso la conoscenza, lo studio, al Popolo, soltanto LORO avevano il… Read more »
