Re: Alcor predicts member revivals on or before Dec 31 2099???!!

"You destructively scan the human brain and the result is uploaded..."

Why imagine future brain scanning as destructive? :o :o :o
Many examples of non-destructive scanning currently in daily life:
barcodes, documents, images, etc.

are alcor applicants rejected for ethical-moral reasons?

e.g., they belong to controversial organizations-movements? they have prison record, or are in prison at time of natural or execution death? if this issue has never arisen, the "2029" newsletter feature evidences a greater chance of it coming up with greater numbers... maybe contract already address...

Re: Alcor predicts member revivals on or before Dec 31 2099?

What if all cryonically preserved have instructions specifying they NOT be revived until after revivals of humans have become routine? In other words, no humans have agreed in advance to being revival "guinea pigs"...? Wanting to extend life indefinitely & subjecting oneself to permanent death via "...

molecular level brain scan (MLBS) predict when

When will full MLBS become reality?
(of living human, of dead cryopreserved human, for purposes of WBE upload to new vessel)
One guess elsewhere is 2150.
Does MLBS cause unavoidable damage to brain?

Re: Alcor’s new statement on ASC

But the law won’t let me, I am not allowed to have control over my own body... Is that true in Oregon? Isn't assisted death of terminally ill permitted? Also, how close to ASC in results is service, below, offered by another cryonics firm? If one's head is simply transferred to aldehyde upon death,...

Re: Alcor’s new statement on ASC

If one was terminally weeks away from death NOW & offered $200K to
have their brain ASC-preserved & stored for future scan-WBE to a body-vessel,
would one get any reputable takers? Assume brain available immediately after legal euthanasia...
