These guys are for real, aren’t they? Get beyond the suspicious light blue background they love so much and here they all are deciding our future for us:
The second international Global Future 2045 congress will take place on 15-16 June 2013 at the Lincoln Center in New York, and will be focused on discussion of a new evolutionary strategy for humanity aimed at overcoming the 21st century’s civilization challenges. The strategy is based on carrying out two revolutions: spiritual and sci-tech. We believe this is the only way to overcome existing crises.
At the congress, a vision will be presented for the spiritual transformation of humanity, and new technologies will be demonstrated which are likely to form the basis of the sci-tech revolution. The congress will also showcase our Avatar science mega-project, aimed at accelerating the creation of technologies enabling a gradual transition from our biological bodies to an increasingly advanced artificial carrier of the human self.
The spiritual transformation of humanity. That’s … er … moving back to our Maker is it … or something altogether different? Do you remember appointing these delegates, by the way? Was there some pamphlet in the letterbox you filled in and voted on who was going to represent your future?
Ken Craggs comments: “The Global Future 2045 project re “transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier” and “creation of optimale conditions” to ensure the survival of humanity.”
Super soldier then? Robot army? Blues and greens popping?
Dalai Lama supports the Global Future 2045 project. Well, he would, wouldn’t he?

The first International Global Future 2045 Congress took place in Moscow in February 2012. The second congress is scheduled to be held in New York in June 2013. Here are videos of speakers at the 1st congress, including Ray Kurzweil of Google.
Should have popped my clogs by then with any luck.
