Cryonics' seems very interesting, and I have no objections if anyone attempts
cryonic survival-Pioneers Welcome! The only issue (for me) is that it may
merely be a fancier way of preservation of dead body, rather then the
restoration of a personality. Rot in good health, is usually the reply to
this; since people feel so strongly that this is the path to hope, for them.
My focus is more the concepts put forth by Moravec and Tipler and Tegmark
(sounds like a law firm!) Tell ya what, when scientists are hitting the news
with humans volunteers being revived (before death!) from
cryo-sleep/preservation--the world will beat a path to Alcor's door. Good
luck and success!
