Below is a Russian Billionaire who is funding the creation of just such a speaking, thinking, acting image monstrosity of himself, which he hopes will let him "live forever". All is a huge physical counterfeit of a spiritual reality. As Satan has counterfeited every other holy thing of God, he is now working on a counterfeit Human and a counterfeit eternal life. Though eternal life cannot be successfully reproduced, in counterfeit, the effort could lead to an "image of the beast" containing a mental and mirror likeness of the Antichrist, plus be programmed with all the other important, accumulated knowledge of world libraries and information already computerized. A seemingly ideal plan for running the whole world from a robotic computerized brain. A brain whose powers of decision making, based on the world's knowledge and information, but expertly programmed to eliminate contradictions of false information or which conflicts with Antichrist's world vision. Such a super computerized, beastly machine, constantly improving and updating itself, could function a thousand years .,.. Except he will only have seven from the Rapture to the end of the Tribulation Period, before Jesus returns to set up His own Millennial Kingdom. This replicates, with added hi-tech improvement, a first such effort by the builders of the Tower of Babel. Ham, one of the three sons of Noah, stepped out of the Ark and fathered the dwellers of Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as the Canaanites, Jebusites, Amorites, Cush, also those of Nineveh and finally the man Nimrod. He it was who led in the futile effort of building the Tower Of Babel as a means of reaching heaven. It was another Luciferic heresy of conquering God and taking over His throne. The Lord let the tower builders continue until they had no doubt expended years of energy and wealth, but had also grown in knowledge, power, experience and unity. Then He confused their common language and hindered their increasing expansion, power and accumulated knowledge... That stopped them temporarily but, in the last days knowledge shall again be increased. Daniel prophesied that in "the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Daniel 12:4
"And the said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." Gen.11:6. In these words, the Lord reveals the almost unlimited power of human knowledge and possibility. He created us in His own image and likeness, which includes a lesser portion of knowledge, power and presense in the image and likeness of His own infinite Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence.

To Live Forever By Uploading His
Personality To A Robot
By Kate Palmer, business reporter
Money can buy you immortality, according to the Russian internet multi-millionaire who is ploughing a fortune into a project to create a human that never dies.
Web entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov is behind the “2045 Initiative”, an ambitious experiment to bring about immortality within the next 30 years by creating a robot capable of storing human personalities.
The group of neuroscientists, robot builders and consciousness researchers say they can create an android that is capable of uploading someone’s personality.
Mr Itskov, who has made a reported £1bn from his Moscow-based news publishing company, is the project's financial backer.
"Different scientists call it uploading or they call it mind transfer. I prefer to call it personality transfer" - Dmitry Itskov
They believe that robots can store a person's thoughts and feelings because brains function in the same way as a computer.
It would work by uploading a digital version of a human brain to an android – effectively rebooting a person’s mind – which would take the form of a robotic copy of a human body or, once technology has developed, a hologram with a full human personality.
Dmitry Itskov says his group of scientists and robot-makers can make immortality a reality within three decades Dmitry Itskov says his group of scientists and robot-makers can make immortality a reality within three decades Mr Itskov, who at 35 has amassed a fortune from his Internet media firm New Media Stars, says he is “100pc sure it will happen”.
He told BBC Horizon in a documentary that airs Wednesday: “If there is no immortality technology, I’ll be dead in the next 35 years.”
The project’s first step is to create a robot that can be controlled using the mind.
Erik Sorto, who was shot and paralyzed from the neck down at the age of 21, can now control a robotic arm with his mind, thanks to sensors implanted in his brain Erik Sorto, who was shot and paralysed from the neck down at the age of 21, can now control a robotic arm with his mind, thanks to sensors implanted in his brain The documentary-makers travel to California, where a quadriplegic Californian man, Erik Sorto, is attempting to control a robot arm with his thoughts.
“The ultimate goal of my plan is to transfer someone’s personality into the new artificial carrier,” Mr Itskov told the Horizon documentary, writes The Sunday Times.
“Different scientists call it uploading or they call it mind transfer. I prefer to call it personality transfer.”
