Now this is one "strange" story!
If your thinking this may just be some more wild BS story, check this link out:Congress will gather world-leading scientists and public figures in 2013, in New York, to discuss how Avatar technologies can drive human evolution.
They discussed the three major steps of 2045 Avatar Project. First, the creation of a human-like robot dubbed “Avatar A,” and a state-of-the-art brain-computer interface system to link the mind with it. Next, it be created a life support system for the human brain, which connects to the “Avatar A,” turning into “Avatar B.” The third step, named “Avatar C”, is developing an artificial brain in which to transfer one’s individual consciousness with the goal of achieving cybernetic immortality.

Has any one else heard of this?
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.
This initiative produced its first congress -- "Global Future 2045” -- on February 17-20 in Moscow.
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.
Event speakers were comprised of world leading physicists, biologists, anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, philosophers as well as specialists in the fields of Big History, robotics, brain-computer interfaces, neurosciences and space technology from Russia, the United States, Canada, the Netherlands and other countries.
The three-day event concluded with the finalization of a resolution that will be submitted to the United Nations demanding the implementation of committees to discuss life extension Avatar projects as a necessary tool in the preservation of humankind, as well as defining ethical parameters for scientists worldwide.
The next GF2045 International Congress will be held June 15 & 16 2013, in New York City.
