Buying hope?

Response to The "Darwin" Quote


I think that there is some truth to that, because there are some cryonicists who don't want to see any criticism at all. There are those who would rather remain ignorant of any faults their organization or current procedures may have. At the same time, though, I do believe there is some wisdom in the old adage about the perfect being the enemy of the good. By that I don't mean that you are necessarily aiming for some sort of idealized perfection that cannot exist, on the contrary, I believe that many of your suggestions are quite practical. It is my hope that many of them will become the standard at some point in the future, hopefully quite soon so that I may benefit from them. However, I don't agree that current procedures, as flawed as they may be, are no better than burial or cremation. It seems far more likely to me that partially vitrified/frozen remains would at least be potentially reparable.
