Walt Disney froze himself in the hopes that he might be brought back to life in the future, but it looks like immortality will not involve a physical form if the 2045 Initiative has any say in the matter. Russian billionaire Dmitry Itskov has proposed a plan that may very well allow people to live forever. The idea is similar to that found in the movie 'Avatar.' Through the 2045 Initiative, people's brains and consciousness would be transferred into a holographic avatar to live on after the body deteriorates.

While the 2045 Initiative may seem ludicrous at first, steps have already been taken in that direction by today's scientists and researchers. Humans can remotely control robotic avatars through brain-computer interaction. A couple more steps in the 2045 Initiative and immortality is achieved.
