Cool. Pleased to meet you. I too an am applied Extropian, b/c I'm in a
research lab working on antioxidant enzyme expression (sod2) and how
it can apply to the problem of aging. I'd like to also become an
applied Extropian of the cryonics variety, so I'd like to take this
opportunity to ask if anybody knows of any cryonics arrangements that
do *not* require you to make them the *owner* of your life insurance
policy? Beneficiary is no problem, obviously, but if one has group
insurance, one cannot transfer ownership, it looks like.
