Transcendence: Could this really be apart of our future?

While I was waiting for my movie to begin at the movie theater today, I saw this preview. Of course, my first thought was Johnny Depp… must be a weird one. But, the trailer for the movie actually caught my eye and attention. And it also got me thinking…

The movie is about a man who’s mind is downloaded onto a computer. Although his body is dead, his mind still lives and is actively feelings and thinking. This brings him unstoppable power.

Could this actual be a realistic thought for our future? Will machines and devices have thoughts and human feelings? Better yet, will we have robots that can do these things.

The power of technology is growing… and quickly, especially with these wild ideas like the one in this upcoming film. I am a bit skeptical of the things that technology will bring in our future, and with all the unknown, will it be able to be controlled by simple humans?
