As the 14 year old girl has done, does anyone think this will work?

no it will never work with the current tech, the body is too damaged in death and the process they use
#2
nope not interested in coming back..don't even think about making a clone of me.

I've dodge enough bullets in my life time so I'm quite happy to still be here.

when I'm gone I'm gone.

probably.

I don't want to die. If I could afford it I would.

Oh, that wasn't the question was it? :p

I'll go with davewave then, probably, eventually.

Maybe in the summer but I don't like going out so much in the Winter due to it being so cold.
Wait, maybe cryogenics isn't for me!
I think it's complete nonsense as when we die we all go and live in a Volcano with Tom Cruise and his scienturdology friends/bankers.

I can't see it working and if they do manage it then you still won't be the same as all the brain cells are dead and if science was able to reproduce the cells then to put them back in the same place in your brain is a bridge too far imo.

They also pump your veins with anti freeze so the chances are you'll return as a freaky Frankenstein

No, but its a fascinating thought.

Or how about that body/head transplant thing?

They aren't all dead tho mate that's the point of it. When your heart stops beating and you stop breathing your cells are still working. They cool everything down straight away so they don't die then do the freezing process. I think she's perfect for future science as the science is all about stopping the cells dying after 'death' and she had cancer so they would have to stop that replicating before they turned everything else back on. Now I need a beer!

Apparently there are hundreds waiting to have it done.

Haven't these people heard of reincarnation?
We all get a free body and a new model with zero miles on the clock but there's always the possibility of getting a 'Glen Hoddle Special'!

I'd give it a go. Nothing to lose if you're already dead.

just watch the movie idiocracy,
then decide.
#14
No because unless all my family and friends agreed to it too, (if it actually worked) I'd just be stuck here with a load of people I don't know/probably don't want to know either. For me life is for living to the best of my ability, at whatever age and stage, then letting my kids, etc.. and their future generations carry on....

Good point. Will these people be dragged away from their magic cloud when their body is reanimated?

Paradox here.
Assisted suicide in this country is illegal. Murder is illegal. They, on the one hand won't let us die. On the other hand 'no-resus' policy is common.
This goes against the current hypocritical situation, and probably Hippocratic oath that the medical profession allegedly live by.
One report I've read said she had this done moments before she would have died. So... (I don't know)... She's dead though replacing your blood with chemicals (embalming?) and freezing to minus a silly number means she's dead. Can she (will she) be brought back life? Who knows? we don't yet that's for sure. And, would you want to with the direction the planet/human species is going? Not I Gungadin.
Before much longer something is going to have to change anyway. Given the current policy of trying to keep people alive forever, and the dwindling re-productivity rate means the non-working element are more and more relying on an ever decreasing working population to pay their pensions. Eventually the economy will topple because of this, non-contributory will have a whole new meaning
We're a funny old lot.

No 1 it's not actually gonna work and 2 the world is so overpopulated already and no one is going to want to bring back people 100 years from now to add to the problems

I fear these early adopters will end up in the ground with no way to revive them.

It would be quite exciting to wake up 100+ years in the future and potentially experience intergalactic space travel and communication with extraterrestrials, though I'm not entirely sure you could fit in with the societies of the future if everything has drastically changed, you'd probably feel like California Man!

Better to do it just before death imo or even better get frozen when you are young fit and healthy as you would have a greater chance of surviving, think i will wait for the technology to improve though,but credit to the young girl for taking such a brave decision its people like her that drive innovation.

But do you think it's a child's imagination that she believes she can come back. Whilst it may ease her pain with that belief, sadly I fear the reality is she will never come back.

I suppose you could call it driving innovation or it could be like selling snake oil to the dreamers.

TBH i think the tech is still in its infancy so i dont think these early attempts will be very successful but in her case it gave her hope in her last days so that is a good thing, but without a doubt this process will improve until its commonplace and a highly effective procedure that will have all sorts of benefits to humanity.

The main thing is can they "defrost" her without any damage to her cells. That's the hard part.

Personally don't think it will work.

They have successfully done it with a rats kidneys and its common to have sperm,eggs and human foetuses frozen but i agree a whole body is a different matter but just a matter of time before they can imo.

I don't think that these people will ever be reclaimed to life. I think that in 150-200 years that the corpses will be exhumed for an understanding of how we live in now. If they are happy risking being a future Jeremy Bentham then fine, go ahead.

Do you have to make holes in the body bag before you stick it in the microwave and give her a few minutes to cool down before serving with a selection of steamed vegetables; I mean before waking her and presenting her with a bill for 8 Billion ISIS Dollars as laws were passed after she died which taxed non believers.

"Hope" is the key word there.

As to cell defrosting , the main and biggest problem is the brain which is amazingly amazing and ultra difficult.

​Thats a pretty poor attempt at humour and totally insensitive considering what the poor girl and her family have gone through, she passed having a bit of hope that her short life could continue at some point in the future where hopefully there will be less fools around to poke fun at the suffering others have to go through
