My kids might be immortal, in some form.

If human-machine interfaces have been developing on pace, and Kurzweil's singularity brings about unimaginably transformative technology advancements around the year 2045.

Kurzweil, isn't that some sort of wave or cloud or something?

If we think of AI, and subsequently human-machine hybrid intelligence, as being stored in the 'cloud' it is likely to experience Kelvin–Helmholtz instability, that is "instability and transition to turbulent flow in fluids of different densities moving at various speeds" --I think the internet, our current best repository of human-machine knowledge, provides a good example. Net neutrality guarantees that there will be turbulence, and if conditions of chaotic state-change are considered the genesis of evolution of unique, useful traits, this is good. Although, inheritable epi-genetics have really smashed the old "slow change over a long time' model of how things become specialized.

Prepare to have your consciousness sold.

Personally, I'm holding out for myself being immortal in some form. I'll only be 65 in 2045, plenty of time to clip those telomeres and maximum retirement savings to spend on it.
