Once we have reliable bulk-transfecting retrovirus vectors (targeting just
the brain would be fine), we can revolutionize first stages of the
cryonical suspension. Assuming future terminal cryonics patients have full
control over their destinies, we can consider transfecting human cells of
such patients with natural-origin and/or engineered polyol and
antifreeze-protein- prooducing enzymatic systems. Zero-spatial-gradient
perfusion from within, so to speak -- complementary to current modus
