I have not read much on cyronics outside this list, but imagine there
must be some thought re payments for being resusitated using
experimental processes. For example, if I pay $100K to Alcor or whatever
I'd expect a verified protocol for resusitation. But why cant I pay $50
to get frozen and agree that I can be used in resusitation experiments?
If I can pay $100K I'd gladly pay for some experimental resusitations. I
would imagine there could be a whole market for this. Pay a small fee
and have a small chance of being resusitated, pay a large fee and wait a
little longer for known good protocols.

Apologies if I am stating the obvious.
