Avatar: the movie
A. What is an Avatar?
«In a 2007 interview with Time magazine, Cameron was asked about the meaning of the term Avatar, to which he replied, «It’s an incarnation of one of the Hindu gods taking a flesh form. In this film what that means is that the human technology in the future is capable of injecting a human’s intelligence into a remotely located body, a biological body.» (απόσπασμα από τη wikipedia)
