Re: Further thoughts about identity survival: some examples

If, when I am dying, I am filled with a sense of certainty
that I will be revived, that is all I ask of alcor.
If, upon revival, I feel less than a perfect sense
of being the same persona who was dying,
I'll deal with it then. :?: :!: :?: :!: :?:
And I'm certain now, my revivers will assist...

Thanks.
Relieved. :o :o :o

DNA half life

DNA half life = 521 years;
Simplistically, does this mean
cryonics preservation period
must be less lengthy to have
over 50% chance of being
successful...?

alcor Covid-19 preservation modifications

what do others think about this? :?: how would you like your preservation to be under these altered conditions? :?: do we need 2 or 3 preservation workflows in future? :?: what about separate room for pandemic cryonic procedures? :?: (sterilization at exit) I find it disturbing, but I'm only an asso...

Re: Cryoncholia

IMO the issues in this thread will not exist in future because they will ALL be quickly solvable. No one will be revived until they are... Guessing now as to how, for example, being unknown after revival & missing loved ones: whomever or whatever is stored in your brain will easily be recreated -- n...
