It seems to me if one would have the right to commit suicide then one should have the right to be cryonicly frozen. The other way may be to declare Extropy as a religion but that seems to go against the general philosophy of Extropy, not to mention the obvious invitation for people to start throwing the word cult around at us. However it is most definitely a philosophy and a way of thinking.
