SXSW: These two futurists want to freeze your body after death and replace your brain

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cryonics, cyborgs, life extension, neuroscience, transhumanism

You might think we’re not in Texas anymore but in some strange episode of Black Mirror, the Netflix series, says Nikos Acuna who is moderating this SXSW panel on transhumanism.

In fact you’d be forgiven if you did as there is talk about cryo-preserving the body after being declared dead, in the hopes you can be resurrected when the science is here to safely defrost your body and cure you of your ailments.

For several years we communicated in very different ways, either parting or renewing relations, and only in 2016 we finally engaged. I realized that everything that I like to do in life, with this person I like even more. On both sides there was a confidence that no matter how we quarrel, nothing will change.

We need better laws to protect the rights of future frozen cryonicists

Posted by in categories: cryonics, law, life extension

Here’s an important story I wrote on #cryonics for Quartz about a recent tragedy of a young girl and society’s reluctance to give people rights after death. I think something like “Danielle’s Law” could be important moving forward:


Cryogenics is facing legal hurdles for people who want their bodies to be frozen for the future.
