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.

Ettinger's startling statement...

Response to Ettinger announces plans for voluntary deanimation.



I was blown away when I read the statement you refer to. I realize Robert Ettinger is in his late eighties, but I still find it shocking on some level to realize he is preparing for his own death and cryonic suspension. When I care about & respect someone such as him, I find it hard to deal with the inevitability of their demise. The article I wrote in the latest issue of Physical Immortality is in many ways a tribute to him.

And yet just as "old soldiers die and regroup in hell," it is fitting that the father of cryonics should submit in the end to the very treatment he has extolled for decades. And I bet before this century is over, we will have Robert Ettinger walking among us again.
