Cryonicists do not want to "cheat death," and if we ever get into discussions or debates where that phrase occurs, we should immediately challenge it. It frames cryonics as an inherently immoral activity and biases the discussion against us. Moreover, no anthropomorphic being called "death" exists with rights we want to defraud. The idea of "cheating death" belongs to the same primitive world view which also assumes that death happens supernaturally and defies the application of scientific and technological rationality.
