Proof of principle in Owada freezer-- and scaling up-- resolves Maxim's qualifiers.August 27 2009 at 10:26 AM

"**Edit: It was foolish of me to write "provided the freezer proved to be beneficial to cryonics procedures, of course," as there's cyrrently no way of proving this, and it seems the Owada method, (like many others), has only been successful with small tissue specimens, "
Me-- The PRINCIPLE is OBVIOUSLY "potentially beneficial to cryonics procedures" which itself is a funny understatement-- the PRINCIPLE the Owada has discovered and which is being commercially applied on small tissues can be SCALED UP-- scaling up or down is ALSO a principle... of creativity... and human creativity is a PRINCIPLE. This is SO 'Potentially beneficial" that cryonics MUST-- by DEFINITION-- at LEAST follow Owada's story. It's not a CASE of PROVING that the Owada principle "is" beneficial to cryonics... it's a case of the MORAL IMPERATIVE to find OUT if it can be -- by learning how it works and figuring out how to scale it up. We're not talking about what "is" but what "could be" based on PRINCIPLES. To say quote "the owada method like many others" actually DISPARAGES the NEW FOUND PRINCIPLE which is NOT "like many others". Maxim's failure to grasp the import here indicates a problem to me.
