From daystar dot co dot uk, Dr. Michio Kaku “gave his mind-bending take on the future of space travel in a Q & A session with fans.” I think he is just spoofing them, since there would have to be a receiver already on the distant planet to receive the human consciousness and implant it in a robot. So humans would have had to already been there and placed the necessary technology.
Asked what his vision of the future is, the physicist predicted that our species will be able to transport “digital consciousness” through laser porting by the end of the century. This will enable us to travel to the Moon in one second, he claims, before visiting the most dangerous parts of the universe in as little as four years.
In response to the question, “Any crazy theories or far out notions that your either believe or just find thought provoking?” Professor Kaku responded: “One of my far out ideas is laser porting.”
“By the end of this century, we will have mapped the entire human brain, and will be able to place the coding on a laser beam and then fire it to the stars. “In one second, our digital consciousness will be on the Moon, without booster rockets, weightlessness, or radiation problems. “In four years, we could be at the nearest star. At the endpoint, there is a receiver which downloads our connectome.
(A connectome (/kəˈnɛktoʊm/) is a comprehensive map of neural connections in the brain, and may be thought of as its “wiring diagram”. More broadly, a connectome would include the mapping of all neural connections within an organism’s nervous system.
“Then our digital consciousness is uploaded into a mechanical avatar, which has the powers of a superhuman.
“Hence, we can explore the universe at the speed of light, and roam across dangerous planets and asteroids.”
Prof Kaku added that aliens may even be using this technology already, but we are yet to discover it.
He continued: “Perhaps this already exists. Perhaps aliens thousands of years ago already created a super highway of laser beams, with billions of digitised souls exploring the universe at the speed of light.
“Too bad we are too stupid and primitive to detect such a superhighway, which could be in our backyard.”
Earlier today Daily Star Online revealed how Prof Kaku also said we will come into contact with an alien civilisation by the end of the century.
