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 Conservative Calculations


....And BTW I revisited those Dixon figures once more. -140 does indeed seem like a great goal to shoot for. It might not be enough for those who can't get prompt treatment after death. But I don't know that those people would be candidates for vitrification anyway....seems as though I read that vascular considerations mandate pretty quick treatment following the pronouncement of death for vitrification to be applicable(?). For the person who is fortunate enough to begin suspension immediately after cessation of vital functions, vitrification and -140 would seem to offer the several centuries timeline that I was advocating for in another post, WRT my more pessimistic scenarios.

The main downside I guess is that ITS--at least as viewed through the prism of 2004--is more complicated to maintain and could leave the suspendee more vulnerable to social/economic upheavals.
