It is indeed very surprising to me that so few people are
signing up for cryonics. If the Prometheus project is successful at
making cryonic preservation and restoration of a mammalian brain
provably successful how many people will start signing up?

Why is it that so many people seem to want to die? Could it
be because our consciousness are just so scared from all the death and
suffering to date that we just don't care for anything better anymore?
