Creator & director : email Cryonics-for-Connectomes or Connectome-Cryonics are equivalent terms for CryoConnectomics or cryoconnectomics. It's now the only cryonics that matters and it has not yet been proven viable-- but it's urgent to do so. It can also potentially falsify the entire cryonics thesis. It is to be distinguished from plastination, uploading and A.I. which is NOT cryonics and is of no interest to cryonicists qua cryonicists. Many cryonicists are also uploaders or transhumanists but cryonics itself is not interested in uploading by definition but rather reversible suspended animation which does require proof of survival of connectomes through vitrification.

Response to Alcor's budget isn't good. At current "burn rates"...


Burn rates are not immutable, cutbacks have already been made, much of that burn rate was for capital acquisitions, and it is almost impossible for alcor to simply "vanish" since the patients are taken care of by the Patient Care Trust, which is not touched and not included in the burn rate you allude to.

Worst case, they have to lay-off staff, cut salaries, and go to a bare bones operation without any R&D or other improvements. They have done it before.
