Robotic Takeover Or Major Human Advances?

Well I'm watching the History channel and its talking about how in the next 40 years we will more than likely be able to copy our brains and put them in another being such as a robot. That is so scary and so amazing at the same time. They say it will eventually lead to immortality. Can you imagine that? I welcome the idea of it. They also said that they will be able to put millions of little nano bots in our body to heal us everytime our body gets hurt or damaged. That is amazing.

Oh and by putting the copy of our brain into the robotic body. They said we could put little robots in our brain and we would be able to increase our abilities and update our brains.

Ok thats all good and everything but doesnt it seem like one day we will eventually be slaves to what we have created? Im not against the advancements at all BUT the risk of all this is pretty obvious. What we create could overtake us. Im willing to risk it. The capabilities of our body after the nanobots are put in us will be astounding and it seems like anything will be possible when this happens. I am definitely looking forward to it.

But as you all know there will be a couple people like religious people that will rebel against this and stall it as long as they can. I wish people like that DIDNT exist. They stunt our progress as a species.

One way to hopefully prevent the robots from taking over is to build multiple shut down switches so that if something does go wrong we have control over it. And if one shutdown button doesnt work we have backups.

Well all I can say is I'm looking forward to these advancements I dont know about you but it makes me so happy to see us making progress as humans. Hopefully soon we will have a couple major advancements like this.

Alright, so you're telling me that in future years, we could make a copy of our brains, and then become a robot.

What if a bug happen?

It sounds like a Bruce Willis movie...everyboy has their mind copyed, then a huge system error, everybody goes "offline", but not Bruce, so he gets out of the system then save the world, once again...

Let's sell this idea to Fox!

lol yea that really does sound like a movie but im not lying one of the scientists on the history channel said that will more than likely be able to happen within40-50 years. I believe it to.

Sounds like a Bruce Willis movie, huh? Sounds more like possibility to me.

Robot with rat brain

Robot teaches itself to smile

You never know, we may become too smart for our own good.

When it comes right down to it, religious people will not be the ones to rebel against this. They in reality are the ones that want to live the most. The question is... Would you want to live forever with them and all of their rules and regulations for you, or would you trust there was something better and cash it in? I'd trust there's something better for me somewhere else and let the christians live forever in this place.

There is nothing after like heaven or hell I'd want to live forever so i could see all the rest of the human advances and yes it would be the religious people to slow it down. They dont like scientific change because it goes against their little book.

So does this mean that i could possibly be waking up to the Microsft Windows sign every morning when i open my eyes? If this happened it would spawn a whole load of new laws about stuff like if you got in a fight you could probably win it against a 100% human person so that would give you an unfair advantage and the government would call you a "lethal weapon". If you ended up mostly computerised, wouldnt you be a little worried about being controlled by some kind of super corporation or a hacker and what if you needed repair? They could charge stupid money for stuff and you couldnt say no. If we were all immortal, breeding would have to stop as there wouldnt be room for the 7 billion or so people plus all the new babies as well. When people die, as sad as it is, it makes room for new life. I for one would rather die than live forever, im 29 now and im already sick of watching the people on this planet destroy each other.
