Response to I agree with your position there, Jordan
where did this concern for ethics all of a sudden pop up? Whatever happened to good old science fiction and speculation? Are you turning this forum into a public relations blitz-- pretending that cryonicists don't advise other cryonicists to go ahead and drink the hemlock now to get preserved rather than wait and allow their brain to turn to jello?
Public relations concerns, ethics and ass covering are boring. Let's get with the program here and deal with reality... which is-- as a cryonicist-- it might be okay to accelerate the deanimation process as a way to preserve higher brain integrity for the long run. What about THOSE ethics? What about the ethics of avoiding open discussion of this which might lead to someone NOT taking advantage of the situation thus potentially realizing their goal of immortality? Or is the ass covering strictly a legal cover generated by fears of reference to 1992?
