<< I recently discovered that several cryonicists have frozen or plan to
their pets. It reminded me of an old sci-fi tale (Heinlein, perhaps) about
a future in which pets had evolved in sync with humans and were able to
communicate, reason abstractly, use metacognition, short, they
evolved into what we are today while their masters had advanced that much
further. Has this been discussed on this newsgroup? Do extropians promote
or accept the idea of accelerating the development of non-human species and
if so...under what circumstances?

Havent there been experiments where they froze a dog for a few weeks then
thawed it and it came back to life?
