Immortality & Global Futures Conference

The beginning of a project to transfer a portion of the human brain, i.e. some simple attributes, into a machine brain cortex begins with establishing power for immortality. This home jar will house ten D size batteries for a total of 40,000 mAh at 3 volts to power the cortex without charging for nearly 2 months. The cortex however will use a daily source solar panel for energy replacement by trickle charge.
What is necessary for a human to attain complete and total immortality?

— our project is to develop and demonstrate a machine brain transfer, in particular to accept some relatively simple characteristics of a human brain, such as limited personality or knowledge, and transfer portions to a machine brain, whereby those characteristics could be given life longevity far exceeding that of the original human, and perhaps establishing an idea of immortality —

Total and complete immortality of man could result as soon as the year 2035 according to Ray Kurzweil and leading futurist scientists. 

For example, Dmitry Itskov, a Russian multimillionaire, wants to build lifelike copies of humans by 2035 that could eventually be uploaded with the contents of a real human brain.
