My fear is this, that if we are brought back. I may end up in the likeness of a clone. If neurons are damaged beyond repairs, quickly after death. Then, the memories are gone, correct? So even upon retrieval, I'm a copy without knowledge of who I was. In a sense, I'll still be dead. After every thing I've had to learn this life go round, I don't want it all lost. There must be an alternative. And also how do you see the future cryonics organizations doing this, if we've only paid for our frozen state?
