There are certain parallels between the promise of old religions and #transhumanism (h+) particularly in respect of the concept of heaven.

Transhumanism much like religions promises:
★ eternal life through brain uploading, virtual reality or avatars;
★ nearly infinite wisdom with huge processing power and immediate access to all knowledge through brain upgrades;
★ freedom from human suffering like aging and sickness through advances in medical technology that will allows us not only fix broken tissue but actively prevent any damage too;
★ and being able to continue interact with a loved one after physical death by transferring the person's last brain state into a virtual body.
