"The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and
realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which
meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimal
conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the
realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high
spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high
This initiative aims to transfer human consciousness to an artificial brain and carrier (a so called "robotic avatar") by the year 2045. This is the first organization of its kind that I have stumbled upon that adds spirituality into the mix. While it is an interesting concept, I feel we are much further away from this sort of technology.
