YES - That would be extremely helpful, but there's one thing that must be
built first: A memetic machine to spread the biological immortality
meme(and extropian memes in general) among people with the same mental
orientation of the ones who follow LDS churches... To my experience,
people who follow those kinds of religious doctrines are much more prone to
automatically refuse extropian ideas and accept "hocus pocus priesthood".
There should be a "Extropian Memetic Engineering department" if someone
decides to pursue further on such endeavor.
