A video of a company called Psychasec surfaced and has the world confused about how far science has gone and if immortality is truly here with their offering of 100% organic “human sleeves”.
They claimed to have been able to achieve true immortality by storing human consciousness in a chip attached to the back of a client’s neck, which can be transferred into the sleeve of the client’s choosing in the event of his/her demise.
It was later revealed that this was a marketing stunt by Netflix to promote their TV series, Altered Carbon; which is based on the premise of immortality through the sleeves Psychasec displayed at Consumer Electronic Show (CES).
A similar concept was brought to life in Charlie Brooker’s “San Junipero” from the award winning anthology, Black Mirror. I for one believe these things are being worked on and it’s only a matter of time before it is functional outside the world of fiction.
What do you think about human immortality through technological advancement? Good Idea?
