Here's an example of an underfunded "smart guy"...
Steven Vachani, a 27-year-old Internet entrepreneur, attended the conference
and signed up for the Alcor plan: paying $400 in annual membership dues, and
naming Alcor as his life insurance beneficiary to cover the cost of freezing
his body in liquid nitrogen for $120,000 (it costs $50,000 to preserve just
My comment... Typical of an underfunded case... Is Vachani imagining economy of scale, no inflation or technical advances? Klein pointed out in 1991... 11 years predating Vachani's sign-up.. that there was a problem... As Cplatt points out, Klien's message was "unwelcome"... but why that? Why NOT "welcome" a paradox???
Whole body preservation won't be 120K in 2072 A.D. at the end of Vachani's life expectency. In fact, the top insurance salesman in cryonics, Rudi Hoffman, has a million in insurance for cryonics.. which is "more like it".. taking into account inflation and higher technolgy.
No log in needed at this time to post. Let's hear your story on your life insurance! The funding gap situation at Alcor is serious and demands everyone's attention.
