In Russia in March of 2012, the Global Future: 2045 Conference or ‘GF2045′ held to focus on the Singularity – the moment when humanity will physically combine with machines to allow for humans to live outside of the physical body, with robot “avatar” bodies and overcome disease, pain and even death. While it sounds like the stuff of a science fiction movie, it is a very real movement and field of study for scientists who believe that humanity is on the cusp of its next stage of evolution. And it once again reveals an attempt to reach immortality without the God of the Bible.

As the conference states on its own website:

The Global Future 2045 Congress is a nonprofit organization with the goal of creating a network community with the world’s leading scientists in the field of life extension and to support them as an investment hub, contributing to various projects.

The Congress objectives included:

  • Presenting the newest developments in the fields of cognitive sciences, robotics, and modeling of living systems
  • Evaluating the potential for transforming planetary civilization in light of the rapid pace of technological development
  • Analyzing possible scenarios for the development of civilization in the context of new concepts regarding universal history, or “Big History”
  • Discussing strategic problems arising in a dynamically changing world and the potential for the appearance of a global or cosmic mode of thinking. (source)

The conference, premised on the ideas of Ray Kurzweil, a scientist and entrepreneur who has been called “the rightful heir to Thomas Edison” for his innovations, which include CCD flat-bed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition. Additionally, he also selected 2045 as the year the Singularity would become a reality.

GF2045 thus focused on “life-extension” technologies that would give a person the ability to keep living well past the time of death for their physical bodies. To give an idea of some of the credentials of the people involved here is a sample:
