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 Elements in Lukes response that seem intentionally misleading to me.


nontoxic vitrification supports pattern-uploading possibility.

No... nontoxic vitrification supports reversible suspended animation... I don't care about pattern-uploading and I don't care about uploading-- I don't like uploading right now. Uploading is A.I. and I have problems with that. I want squishy wet brain organs in their original format. To get reanimated as a squishy wet organism, I need nontoxic vitrification. Now... if Luke wants support for uploading, he can use EITHER the nontoxic vitrification system OR he can use the TOXIC PLASTINATION method. He can be my guest on that one but I think cryonics should be defined as reanimating squishy wet brains from NONTOXIC vitrification. We can devise an exam of a brain slice that has been vitrified and see if the connectomes made it. Connectomes are a neccessary but insufficient condition for reanimation, with emphasis on the neceessary. Thus if we zero in on the necessary first, we can prove or falsify the cryonics thesis.
