I know zilch abt all this, but what happens if & when (a) the insurance
companies realise that medical/genomic/nanomed improvements in healthy
longevity are adding together into a lifespan revolution (on the face of it
fees should fall, but...), (b) potential customer get it, too (they'll
stopping buying insurance, no?). If the whole customer base for the
insurance industry collapses around the same time revival becomes
technically feasible - since both are constrained/enabled by the same
factors - then the cryo warehouse customers will be shit out of luck right
when they need it most. No?
