In one of the topics here appeared the subject of downloading the human brain into a hard drive in the near future.
Also one of Ray Kurzweil's books was mentioned.
What do you think (feel about) of this?
Will it happen in the next 50 (maximum) years?
Will this be the first step in becoming immortal?

I personally don't believe it will be possible, but I do wish it would become reality.

Well they did managed to map all areas of the brain.
The human mind is starting to be not such a mystery to us.

I think it will take much longer to do something like this and possibly never.  The human brain is too complicated.  Humans will probably destroy the planet before they can get that far.

Think the brain still has a ways to go, like figuring out how the brain receives info from the gut.
The way connections are made and where we store info is being broke down but how to fix it is a bit slower. Think 3 years till its tried, maybe 15 years from sucess.

Seeing as how fast technology is advancing we could not recognize the world in 50 years. Who knows?

I don't think human brain can be downloaded into a hard drive. The information might be, yes. But is it really what makes us human beings? Our thoughts also depend on our feelings and as long as computer can't feel the world, hard drive is not an appropriate solution for our immortality

I think we'll need to figure out what consciousness is before being able to migrate it.

And who knows how a mind without a body will operate? A human being is a giant slab of chemical and electrical soup. It's all there for a reason.

Ghost in the shell. The best ever, regarding all of your questions. It is amazing how timeless the story is.

The Stand alone Complex episodes are really deep. Almost prophetic. I Hope not.

We meet again, consciousness , and I still don't know who or what you are, how tall you are, how much you weigh, where you are, where you've been before I was. How can I download you if I can't define you first?

Maybe this singularity happened before. Little traces of this event lingers in our collective minds, generations after generations, forgotten, then transformed, becoming a false memory/tale called Atlantis?

Every living creature is mortal, there is no such thing as immortality. I don't beleive that it will be ever possible in the future. Every part of human has its' "validity period", that is how the things are.

That made me think of this old favorite of mine by Donovan:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AUEjzVQwKo

The continent of Atlantis was an island which lay before the great flood
in the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean.
So great an area of land, that from her western shores
those beautiful sailors journeyed to the South and the North Americas with ease,
in their ships with painted sails.
To the East Africa was a neighbour, across a short strait of sea miles.
The great Egyptian age is but a remnant of The Atlantian culture.
The antediluvian kings colonised the world
All the Gods who play in the mythological dramas
In all legends from all lands were from fair Atlantis.
Knowing her fate, Atlantis sent out ships to all corners of the Earth.
On board were the Twelve:
The poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist,
The magician and the other so-called Gods of our legends.
Though Gods they were -
And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
Let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new
Hail Atlantis!

In one of the topics here appeared the subject of downloading the human brain into a hard drive in the near future.
Also one of Ray Kurzweil's books was mentioned.
What do you think (feel about) of this?
Will it happen in the next 50 (maximum) years?
Will this be the first step in becoming immortal?

I don't think that immortality is a goal here. Ray Kurzweil said: "Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it." And I completely agree with him. Also I don't think that downloading the human brain into a hard drive would be ever possible. Actually we still don't know exactly what is human brain and how it operates.

Yes, we don't know at the moment. But how many incredible discoveries were made in the last 50 years alone.
And the rate technology is evolving in accelerating constantly.
