P.A.L.M. Cryonics My effort to maintain a cryonics contract is beginning to collapse as of 2010 with the weight of numerous factors, not the least of which was the wake-up call posted on the Alcor blog about the lack of contractual guarantee of a grandfathered price agreement. Suddenly, I realized I've made a major blunder-- I ought to have bought a million dollars in life insurance at age 34 (when I signed up)-- to cover advanced cryonics in 2057 when I'll be 100-- assuming I live that long-- which I could very well. Now, I'm threatened with less and less cryonics technology and rescue capability as the price of a basic neuro increases.
In brief, I think I have to help the Board of Alcor create a new type of contract... whereby I'll be cancelling my "full" membership, but leave my 50K neuro life insurance policy with Alcor... as a down payment on whatever cryonics rescue they can do for me well into the future... toward 2057 when I reach 100 years of age... which down payment will be enhanced by whatever I manage to leave Alcor in my will or trust. --Rick Potvin PALM A-1348 (PALM indicates no membership dues will be paid, but a life insurance policy will remain with Alcor along with an updated will or trust indicating extra money for Alcor to enhance my original down payment-- this will be called Pre-Arranged Last Minute cryonics membership).
