In evolutionary biology mimicry is the similarity of one species to another which protects one or both. This similarity can be in appearance, behavior, sound, scent and location, with the mimics found in similar places to their models. Mimicry occurs when a group of organisms,the mimics, evolve to share common perceived characteristics with another group, the models.
In the project I am focusing on contemporary techniques of modern survival and combining them with anthropology and philosophy. I use the definitions from the scope of common knowledge as well as quotations from representatives of modern science and medicine.

Mechanics of materials, also called strength of materials, is a subject which deals with the behavior of solid objects subject to stresses and strains. The complete theory began with the consideration of the behavior of one and two dimensional members of structures, whose states of stress can be approximated as two dimensional, and was then generalized to three dimensions to develop a more complete theory of the elastic and plastic behavior of materials.

Ameboid is a single-celled life-form characterized by an irregular shape. "Amoeboid" and "amœba" are often used interchangeably even by biologists,[2] and especially refer to a creature moving by using pseudopodia. An ameboid replicates by splitting in half asexually so that each daughter cell is the same as the parent. Running this process backward from the present, each existing ameboid is the same as its predecessor. In this regard ameboid is immortal.

About 2045 science progress will lead to generating a technological personality, meaning overcoming by human being its biological boundaries. One of the consequences of creating this singularity will be a possibility of deriving human consciousness form its biological carrier that is its brain, and transferring it to digital media. (...) We will be more and more non-biological.
