Death - CM theme of the month

Ivona explored the Death theme from her design and scienctific background.
Life is a concept impossible to define in an accurate way, because life is an infinite change that ever since, pushed humanity to the eternal youth research.

She talked about this Swiss company, Blue Brain, that is trying to rebuild human brain into a AI machine. It's just a matter of lack of the right processor that is holding them.
