  1. In any way does cryonics provide the same sort of psychological comfort that religion provides for some people? Have you just replaced heaven with the future?

The future is largley unlinked to heaven in a scientific world. The concept is immortality, or at least a largely expanded life.

The truth is, the future will be more like hell if some things happen. We will wake up completely unprepared for the onslaught of technology. We may well go insane.

2. Since you plan to live forever, what are your long term goals?

Long term goals? See the universe. Bask in the glow of a foreign star. Have dinner wive my descendents and tell them of the barbaric 20th century when compared the the 44th century or whatever.

How do you look at life differently than somebody who expects to live a short life span?

Everything that is done can have serious ramifications. Take the butterfly theory. True thats more Chaos theory then extropy.

2. Are any of you afraid of your bodies falling into the wrong hands after your frozen? It is possible that you might be reanimated as some kind of lab animal.

Many people think the world will revel in the oldest person alive. I dont. If I wake up as a lab animal, then I will kill myself, in the event I dont like the pellets.
